H-syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder with characteristic features of hyperpigmentation, hypertrichosis, hepatosplenomegaly, heart anomalies, hearing loss, hypogonadism, and low height. The manifestations of the syndrome are seen usually in the childhood, and most of the components of the syndrome are evident by adolescence. Till date, there is no mention in the literature of psychosis as a part of syndrome nor as a comorbidity. Here is a case report of H-syndrome diagnosed patient presenting with psychosis. Whether psychosis is a part of the syndrome or comorbid is not clear and hence to be observed in future.
