Psychotic symptoms in young children do not present as distinct delusions or hallucinations. Instead they take the form of subtle behavioural oddities, confusion and fearfulness. Here we present a rare case of sudden onset psychosis and discuss the symptomatology along with possible clinical conditions that may mimic the picture.
