We intend to report a case of Schizophrenia whom was presented with multiple rare and interesting symptoms. He showed perseveration, autoscopic hallucination and confabulation. The patient is a 23 years old man that his problems started about five years ago with bizarre behavior; self-talking, autoscopic hallucination, seeing himself at past. In this exacerbation; had poverty of content of thought, commanding auditory hallucination and elementary visual hallucination. About Autoscopic hallucination, our current data mentions this fact that several brain mechanisms are involved in Autoscopic Hallucination, hence we suggest that since Schizophrenia accompanies with several brain changes, these changes led to Autoscopic Hallucination in this patient. Our patient's confabulation is Schizophrenic confabulation that is due to his poverty of content of thought and is not related to any neurological disorder.

Keywords: Schizophrenia, Perseveration, Autoscopic hallucination, Confabulation.
