There is paucity of information about psychoses in such patients with little follow up. We report a case of schizophrenia in a male patient diagnosed with Fragile X syndrome. The patient has been followed up for a period of 3 years. The diagnostic and management challenges are discussed. This is a unique case of schizophrenia in Fragile X syndrome. We discuss the common molecular pathways to the expression of both schizophrenia and Fragile X syndrome. This is the first case report of schizophrenia in a patient with diagnosis of Fragile X syndrome in Australia. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
