Resumen

PITTA, Giovanni et al. Cotard’s syndrome in a female patient with systemic lupus erythematosus and left petroclival meningioma. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2021, vol.19, n.1, pp.74-78. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2021.019.01.74.

Cotard’s syndrome is a rare entity in which the patient manifests delusional ideas about being lifeless or that his/her internal organs are in a state of decomposition, among other psychopathological alterations. There are different reports in different cultures and populations about the syndrome. It usually has neuropsychiatric presentations and is identified by accompanying neurological, metabolic, and infectious entities, among others. In this case report, a female patient with systemic lupus erythematosus is presented, who developed this type of delusions and during her hospitalization a left petroclival meningioma was detected. Finally, it was concluded that she was not in lupus activity and that the location of the tumor was not the cause of the behavioral alteration. Cotard’s syndrome is a rare neuropsychiatric disorder, which should be considered when there are nihilistic delusions.

Palabras clave : Systemic Lupus Erythematosus; meningioma; delusions.
