Psychosis associated with COVID-19 infection - a case report

Authors: Abdulsamad A. Aljeshi, Abdelrahim S. I. Abdelrahim, Mohammad A. Aljeshi.

ABSTRACT

Background: Evidence of psychiatric side effects of coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19), though rare, have been reported in several case reports. Case Presentation: This case highlights the emergence of psychosis in a COVID-19 seropositive 32-year-old female patient immediately after receiving a positive polymerase chain reaction test result of COVID-19. After 8 days of admission and treatment with olanzapine, the patient was in complete remission. Conclusion: Further investigation into the link between COVID-19 viral infections and the potential to elicit changes in the mental status of affected patients is warranted.
