Psychosis in Parkinson's disease (PD) is a frequently documented clinical phenomenon, whicj poses several clinical and management issues. The antagonistic nature of medications makes the treatment more challenging. The advanced age and medical co morbidities call for a more cautious monitoring. The goal should be to make the patient optimally functional as far as motor and psychotic symptoms are concerned. The case discussed here demonstrates a case of psychosis occurring in the context of PD, and highlights the complex issues involved in the management, and discuss them in light of recent research.
