Large intracranial tumour may present only with psychiatric symptoms without any neurological deficits. Delay in surgical treatment may significantly affect the quality of life in these patients. We report a case of a young engineering student who was diagnosed as treatment-resistant depression without initial neuroimaging study. Further neuroimaging studies revealed he has a large falcine meningioma. His psychiatric symptoms resolved following surgical resection of the tumour. We emphasized the importance of initial neuroimaging study in young patients presenting with psychiatric symptoms.
