Abstract

A case of previously diagnosed bipolar disorder was found to be associated with unilateral subcortical grey matter heterotopia, cortical hemiatrophy, midline shift, and ventriculomegaly on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The patient responded to pharmacotherapy with lithium carbonate and carbamazepine. This case dramatically illustrates the need for neuroimaging in psychiatric patients with apparently "functional" affective illness.
