Ananth J, et al. J Nerv Ment Dis. 1984.
The case history of a 19-year-old black woman who died the day after she was treated for psychosis is described. The remarkable finding in her mental status was hyper-religiosity and in postmortem was a thymoma. The report discusses the relationship between thymoma and psychosis as well as the need to look for an organic etiology in patients manifesting a sudden psychotic regression with hyper-religiosity.
