Cycloid Psychosis: A Case Report
Psicose Cicloide: Um Caso Clínico
Main Article Content
The authors describe a clinical case of a 41-year-old woman with a first-episode psychosis characterized by visual, verbal, and auditory hallucinations, delusional persecutory and mystic-messianic ideation in parallel with high-sounding and catastrophic speech. Due to exuberant clinical presentation organic disease was excluded and the patient was admitted. The patient was medicated with risperidone, including after discharge, achieving total remission of the clinical and functional
situation, having restarted professional and social activity. The report of this case is justified by its presentation and the importance of a correct diagnosis, with adequate medical assessment in view of the good prognosis attributed to this pathology.
