We present a case of an 8-year-old male child diagnosed with Crohn's disease, and he experienced a steroid-induced psychosis during induction of remission with corticosteroid therapy. This study aims to report a steroid-induced psychosis in the pediatric age group and add this case to the limited number of reported pediatric patients who developed a steroid-induced psychosis with a focused review of the literature.
