Vigabatrin-induced psychosis--management problems.


A 22-year-old patient with partial seizures developed schizophreniform psychosis following the introduction of vigabatrin. She stopped her anticonvulsant medication as a consequence of her persecutory delusions. She subsequently suffered status epilepticus with severe brain damage. It is essential to outline a management plan for patients to detect and treat vigabatrin-induced psychosis.
