Chong Siew Koon, Tuan Sharipah bt Tuan Hadi

Abstract


Cavum vergae is a rare and often coincidental finding in several cases of late onset Schizophrenia as well as psychosis due to organic causes presenting in elderly patients. Cavum septum pellucidum (CSP) and cavum vergae (CV) have separately and together been described with an association with an increased risk of neurodevelopmental disorders and psychosis. Unfortunately, there is scant literature on the psychopathological significance of CV, and even fewer reports of isolated CV in late onset psychosis.
