Abstract

Background: Early-onset schizophrenia is a neurodevelopmental disorder and its etiology is not entirely elucidated. Choroid plexus, contains serotonin namely 5 hydroxy tryptamine (5-HT) neurons, and the choroid plexus calcification seen in schizophrenia can be associated with altered 5-HT innervation patterns.

Case presentation: This paper presents an association with bilateral choroid plexus calcification in a 16-year-old female patient diagnosed with very early onset schizophrenia.

Conclusion: Choroid plexus calcification seen in schizophrenia can be associated with altered 5-HT innervation patterns.
