Although many psychiatric disorders, especially depression, may be seen after stroke, development of psychosis is rare. Post-stroke psychiatric disorders are associated with the affected brain regions and may appear with different symptoms. Although psychotic symptoms have been reported in association with strokes in different brain areas, temporoparietooccipital lesions have a higher possibility of leading to the development of secondary psychosis than those in other brain areas. This article aims to present a case of tactile hallucination and delusion in a previously healthy man that developed after ischemic stroke with right temporoparietooccipital involvement.
