    Psychosis induced by ayahuasca is a rare occurrence. However, due to an increase in the access and distribution of this substance, it is necessary to highlight the cases in which it occurs. We describe the case of a 26-year-old man who was admitted to the psychiatric service after seven months of changes in behaviour, delusions and the subsequent exacerbation of symptoms, after participating in a ritual ceremony during which he consumed an ayahuasca concoction for the first time. Initially, he required hospital treatment to control the acute psychotic episode, but after tolerating and responding well to the antipsychotic treatment, he was discharged with an outpatient follow-up.
