The development of Parkinson's disease (PD) is rarely reported in psychotic patients. The diagnostic complexity, especially the possibility that motor symptoms could be secondary to antipsychotics, makes difficult the recognition of the comorbidity. We report on a case of 62-year-old woman with schizoaffective disorder who developed PD. This case report emphasizes the possibility of the diagnosis of both conditions on the same patient.
