Glutaric acidemia type 2 (GAII), also known as glutaric aciduria, is a rare type of inherited disorder, in which the body is unable to process certain proteins properly. Presentation can vary from mild myopathy to metabolic acidosis or cardiomyopathy, as well as neurological complications. However, psychiatric manifestations have not been reported. The present case describes one such instance where a young male presenting with symptoms of psychosis with underlying metabolic disorder was diagnosed with GAII. Issues concerning the adequate administration of psychotropic medication have also been addressed.
