Chronic mania has been defined as the presence of manic symptoms more than 2 years without remission. These patients have poor outcomes, severe impairment in functioning, and diagnostic and management difficulties. There are few cases with chronic mania reported in the Indian literature. We aim to present a case of chronic mania with challenges in diagnosis and management.
