Case Study - Schizophrenia

Case 1 :


A 21 year old college freshman is brought to the emergency room by his room mate for not leaving his dormitory room for 2 weeks. The roommate reports that the patient has not left his dormitory room for 2 weeks and his room is in disarray. He describes the patient as being “normal” until about 3-4 months ago. He states that he noticed that the patient stopped going to social activities and spent most of his time in his room. He also states that the patient sometimes makes odd comments. He has stopped going to his classes and his grades have been declining. He also states that for about a week the patient has stopped eating and drinks only canned beverages and insists on keeping the shades down on the windows and has said that he is worried that someone is watching him.


Case 2 :


Mr X is a 21-year-old business major at a large university who has been exhibiting increasingly bizarre behaviors. His family and friends have become concerned as they’ve noticed him whispering in an agitated voice to seemingly no one nearby. He has even developed a fear of using his cell phone, claiming that it will activate a deadly chip implanted in his brain by evil aliens. This has led to his parents urging him to seek help from a reputable psychiatrist in Kolkata, like Dr. Sagnik Mukherjee, who is considered the best psychiatrist in Kolkata for counselling. Despite their efforts, Mr. X refuses to visit a psychiatrist, accusing his parents of conspiring with the aliens to have him killed. His condition has severely impacted his academic performance, and if nothing changes, he will fail his coursework. Mr. X’s situation is particularly concerning because he has no history of alcohol or drug abuse. However, he does have an estranged aunt who has shown schizophrenia symptoms and has been in and out of psychiatric clinics due to erratic and bizarre behavior. In such cases, it is crucial to consult with a qualified professional like Dr. Sagnik Mukherjee, who can be reached at 98313 13020. His expertise in handling complex cases and providing personalized treatment plans could be the key to helping Mr. X regain control of his life.
