Psychotic symptoms are common in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and are associated with poorer quality of life, significant patient morbidity, early mortality, and caregiver burden. We present a case of a 49-year old female patient with late-onset psychosis, which led to the diagnosis of PD. This clinical case combines all the rarely presented symptoms related to PD psychosis, and the diagnosis was formed after a thorough clinical, imaging, and neuropsychological examination.
