ABSTRACT
Cavernomas are rare vascular lesions of the brain, usually asymptomatic. The risk of bleeding is lower than that of aneurysm or arteriovenous malformations. However first episode of psychosis (FEP) is rare reported as being associate with cerebral cavernomas. We presented the case of 67 years old women, with no other medical history, diagnosed with first episode of psychosis, and multiple cavernomas, including one recently bleeding. Patient was having a cerebral computed tomography that misleading to a multiple cerebral contusions diagnosis, and then an MRI exam identify multiple cavernomas. We emphasized the role of imagistic exams in first episode of psychosis (FEP). Quetiapine was the drug of our choice. No surgical intervention was performed, conservative and antipsychotic treatment (quetiapine) was successful.

Keywords: cavernomas, first episode of psychosis, quetiapine, imagistic studies
