Menstrual Psychosis : A Case Report

Abstract

Menstrual Psychosis is a unique disorder (Altschule et al, 1963). Over the last 150 years, sporadic case reports of this disorder are found in the literature. As yet, the standard psychiatric diagnostic nomenclature i.e. DSM, ICD-10 does not acknowledge its individuality. We report a 16-year-old female patient who was treated for three episodes of psychosis over a period of 5 months

Keywords: Menstruation, Psychosis, Gonadal Hormones
