SUMMARY
A Case of Simultaneous Mania and Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus: Etiology or Comorbidity?

Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), typically associated with
the triad of gait disturbance, dementia and urinary incontinence,
rarely presents with symptoms of mania, depression or psychosis and
psychiatric disorders may complicate the diagnosis. Few cases of NPH
and psychiatric disease comorbidity have been reported so far. In most
of these cases, NPH was associated with depression and psychotic
symptoms. Mania symptoms were also reported in a few cases those
of which were associated with a history of bipolar disorder (BPD)
or subthreshold BPD symptoms. In this paper, we present a case of
late-onset mania symptoms simultaneously presenting with NPH in a
healthy individual without a history of psychiatric disorder.
Key Words: Normal pressure hydrocephalus, ventriculomegaly, lateonset, secondary mania
