Abstract

The psychological impact of COVID-19 pandemic in patients with genetic diseases such as Tuberous sclerosis complex remains to be misunderstood. We report a case of a patient with Tuberous sclerosis who presented with hallucinations, delusions, and disorganized behavior. He developed psychotic symptoms directly triggered by stress derived from COVID-19 pandemic.
