The appearance of psychosis during pregnancy means a challenge for clinicians, either untreated psychiatric disorders or pharmacological treatment of pregnant psychotic females increase risk of complications. Controlled clinical trials can't be evaluated because of ethical considerations, so case reports have higher scientific values than in other clinical issues. The authors inform about a delivery of a young psychotic female, who was treated with olanzapine (atypical antipsychotic) after the 25th weeks of her pregnancy. A healthy newborn was born in the observed case, the Apgar score was 7 at the first minute and 9 at fifth minute.
