Abstract

Concurrence of psychosis and Dandy-Walker complex (DWC) has been reported in some medical literature. Here, we reported four patients with concurrent psychosis and DWC of all four subtypes. Some clinical features found were juvenile or young adult age onset, high frequency of family history of psychosis, atypical psychotic symptoms, and high prevalence of cognitive deficit and refractoriness to treatment, in line with the cases in previous reports. These findings might help further illuminate the role that the cerebellum plays in the etiology of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
