Stressful situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic can serve as a niche for developing pathological mental state or influence the symptomatology of patients with psychiatric disorders. Here, we present four such cases. Three cases highlight the onset of psychosis precipitated by the immense stress posed by the pandemic. In the last case, psychopathology of a patient with preexisting mental illness getting influenced by the pandemic is highlighted. In all the four cases, it is interesting to note that delusional work is weaved around the COVID-19.
