First episode psychosis following COVID-19 infection: two case reports from Turkey

Şeyma Sehlikoğlu, Behice Han Almiş.

Abstract
Introduction: Coronoviruses can reach the brain by various mechanisms and cause neuropsychiatric symptoms. We present two case reports of patients presenting with first episode psychosis after Covid-19 infection to a training and research hospital in Turkey.
Results: According to the Structured Clinical Interview-Clinician Version for DSM-5 Disorders (SCID-5/CV), both patients were diagnosed with first episode psychosis. The cases had psychosocial stressors and their complaints resolved with low-dose antipsychotic treatment.
Conclusions: As a result, we think that psychosocial factors such as stressful events and environments created by the pandemic may trigger first-episode psychosis.

Key words: Covid-19, First-Episode Psychosis, Stress, Psychotic Disorder.
