Abstract

Attenuated psychosis syndrome is an entity that has recently been recognized in diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders-5th edition (DSM-5) as a condition for further study. It is a condition in which the patient experiences psychotic-like symptoms but it does not fulfill the criteria for a full-blown psychosis. We hereby present a possible case of attenuated psychosis in a 30-year-old female and discuss its implications in diagnosis and management.
