Özet

Although the association between disorders of thyroid function and psychiatric symptomatology is well established, psychoses associated with hyperthyroidism are uncommon. Behavioral abnormalities that may extend to psychosis can be a manifestation of severe hyperthyroidism due to Graves' disease. In this case report, we present a 39-year-old man who developed a psychotic disorder due to Graves' disease. (Archives of Neuropsychiatry 2012; 49: 317-319)
