Abstract

It is common for a psychiatrist to treat patients with co-morbid medical conditions. If there are co-existing sensory impairments like deafness or blindness, in the patients with the underlying psychiatric symptoms, then diagnosis and treatment becomes a challenging task. Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a progressive degeneration of retinal neuroepithelium which leads to impairment of visual acuity and visual fields ultimately ending in blindness. It is often found to involve other structures, particularly the nervous and endocrine systems. We are presenting a similar case that had RP and later started having symptoms of schizophrenia which was treatment resistant.
