Abstract

We present a case of a 24-year-old woman with abnormal behaviour of recent onset. She had been diagnosed previously with epilepsy and had been started on antiepileptic medication. Clinical examination confirmed features of psychosis including paranoid delusions and auditory hallucination. Neurological examination showed nystagmus and dysmetria. Further evaluation revealed the underlying cause for her symptoms. She responded promptly to appropriate therapy with complete resolution of psychosis.
