Abstract: Our study focuses on a 30-year-old man who was hospitalised against his will because of his agitated psychotic state. His symptoms were indicative of a paranoid psychotic disorder resulting from the use of corticosteroids. We considered it important to report this case because corticosteroids have been widely prescribed since about 1950 to treat a broad spectrum of somatic illnesses and because there have been many reports of both mild and acute psychiatric side-effects.
