We report an adult female who had changes suggestive of encephalomalacia in bilateral temporal and basifrontal region in the magnetic resonance imaging of the brain but presented with psychiatric symptomatology suggestive of psychosis instead of neurological manifestations. Encephalomalacia is softening of the brain tissue which may lead to the brain changes and present with varied clinical manifestations. Most of the cases reported previously were in infants and children and almost all of them were related to neurological disorders. However, cases with psychiatric symptomatology were rarely reported, that too in adults. The authors discussed the psychiatric symptom profile, their management and emphasized the importance of imaging of the brain and its association with psychiatric manifestations.
