Abstract : In the past decade, interest in and research on pediatric bipolar disorder (BD) has increased substantially. Prevalence rates of the disorder have doubled in outpatient settings, while twice as many research articles on pediatric BD were published in the past five years as in the prior decade. Assessment of BD presents numerous challenges, such as a fluctuating presentation, complicated diagnostic criteria, and high rates of co morbidity. Here, we are reporting a case of a 7 year old male child who presented with mania with psychotic symptoms.
