"Another term lycanthrope, often used to describes werewolves, however, refers to someone who suffers from a mental disease of fantasizing being a wolf. This particular mental disorder is termed lycanthropy."
Arsenius Jigger, The Essential Defence Against the Dark Arts.[src]

Lycanthropy is the state in which a werewolf finds him or herself: that of turning into a fearsome and deadly near-wolf.

The term is often used to describe actual werewolves, but some authors, like Arsenius Jigger in his work The Essential Defence Against the Dark Arts, assert that its correct use is of describing a mental disease of fantasising being a wolf and, thus, prefer the term werewolfry, when referring to the condition of being a werewolf.[1]
