Catatonia is a neuropsychiatric syndrome with multifactorial etiopathogenesis. It can be seen in patients with alcohol dependence in the context of withdrawal in the presence of comorbid psychiatric disorders (substance induced or independent) or as a consequence of medications used to treat dependence. This is a case of an elderly patient with alcohol dependence, and a prior episode of psychosis, who developed acute psychosis with catatonia following the concurrent use of disulfiram and baclofen.
