The prevalence of CSP and CV is about 0 · 15%, and affects men more than women.(3) The size of normal-variant cavum is approximately 1 mm–4 mm. CSP is considered abnormally large if it is ≥ 6 mm in size. Enlarged CSP is often seen in psychiatric patients(1,2) and considered as evidence of disturbed midline development of the brain, and particularly of the limbic system.(5) The symptomatic cava could be managed medically, but the medications only reduce signs and symptoms; also, there is development of tolerance and quick recurrence. Surgery should be an option in management because through surgery these midline cysts could be incised and stop further enlargement. In the case reported, the patient first presented mild psychotic symptoms, which remained stable for few years, followed by exacerbation, which indicates the progressive nature of the disease. Global atrophy of the brain might be responsible for the gradual enlargement of cavities, and atrophy of limbic and paralimbic structures might have enhanced psychotic symptoms. Miyamori et al.(4) concluded that the thickening of the septum pellucidum and the lowering of the ventricular pressure were the two main factors in developing the pathological cava. Structural and functional deficit in limbic and paralimbic regions usually cause associative and integrative problems, such as distorted interpretations of reality. Also, brain midline abnormalities and the age factor synergistically might have accelerated cognitive decline; hence, he had a lower score on the MMSE. Paresis of the left limbs was caused by an infarctive lesion in the right internal capsule, which improved after treatment. The possibility of drug tolerance could not be excluded since the patient's symptoms gradually recovered after medical management. Surgical treatment, if necessary, was left for future management.
