Normal pressure hydrocephalus presenting as delusional disorder.

Srivastava S, Bhatia MS, Gautam P - Ind Psychiatry J (2015 Jan-Jun)

Bottom Line: Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is caused by aqueductal stenosis resulting in syndrome of gait disturbance, cognitive impairment, and urinary incontinence.Late onset psychosis should be evaluated thoroughly to rule out any organic cause.We present the case of a female patient presenting with delusions, gait disturbances, urinary incontinence in her 50s.
