Abstract:   (1171 Views)
 The Patient is a 66 years old woman with bipolar mood disorder type 1 since 28 years old. She has three sons with no daughter. Her husband remarried with a widowed woman 12 years ago that (who) has a daughter and a son from previous marriage. Before the beginning of the last period of mood disorder she has an important tension with her sons and their wives so that all of them left the Party in her home in the fifth and last admission to the psychiatric ward. In the mid-treatment process, she claimed that she is pregnant and her fetus is a daughter. Although most of the classic signs and symptoms of pregnancy were found in the patient and serum Prolactin level was high because of risperidone use in the 8mg/d dose, all tests, including beta-HGH levels and ultrasound, showed that she was not pregnant. However, the patient insisted on her pregnancy (pseudocyesis). It seems that Psychodynamic processes and high levels of Prolactin had a role in her claim.
