  • Abstract  

    Introduction: Meningioma is a brain tumor, which is commonly seen during fifth decade. One fourth of these tumors manifests as clinical symptoms based on their location. However, presence of psychiatric symptoms as an initial manifestation of underlying tumor is not a common presentation.
    Case Description: Here, we report a case of 55 years old man developed psychosis as a clinical symptom of underlying left temporal meningioma.
    Discussion: In our case, presence of left temporal meningioma is a possible reason for psychotic breakdown. However, not many case reports have been previously documented wherein a patient developed psychosis with left temporal meningioma.
    Conclusion: Hence, this case stresses need for early detection of organic brain lesions in the presence of any psychiatric symptoms.
