Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

We explore a case of a forensic patient with severe personality disorder, borderline type, and additional psychotic symptoms. Furthermore, she showed parietal lobe abnormalities.

METHOD:

We describe a case report and the relevant theoretical deliberations.

CONCLUSIONS:

Attempts to categorize patients with severe borderline personality disorder and psychotic symptoms have been made since the beginning of the 20th century. We show that in our patient neuroimaging such as SPECT scan can prove parietal lobe abnormalities. We describe possible links between these findings and her symptoms.
