Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Turner syndrome encompasses several chromosomal abnormalities and includes a typical clinical manifestation. While common somatic symptoms are often described, neuropsychiatric alterations are rare and not frequently mentioned in the literature.

METHOD:

In this paper, we report on a subject with Turner syndrome who also showed psychotic symptoms.

CONCLUSIONS:

The theoretical background and the relevance of this observation are discussed. Furthermore, this article briefly reviews existing reports on Turner syndrome and psychosis and presents neuropsychiatric changes in patients with Turner syndrome.
