The purpose of this case report is to discuss the rare Itraconazole induced psychosis in a 65-year-old female patient. Itraconazole is an antifungal agent of triazole group and is used for the prophylaxis and treatment of invasive, chronic and allergic aspergillosis, mycoses, onychomycosis and vaginal candidiasis. Psychosis is a common presentation in Psychiatry OPD, but when it occurs following antifungal medication then it is a serious issue for Psychiatric as well as Dermatological point of view. This type of rare idiosyncratic reaction should be kept in mind by the clinician during prescribing antifungals like Itraconazole.
