Abstract [en]

We report successful treatment with electroconvulsivetherapy of a comorbid condition including severe obsessive-compulsivesymptoms and hypochondriacal delusions in a 38-year-old man withAsperger syndrome. His condition deteriorated into a severely disabledchronic state that was refractory to different pharmacological andpsychological treatments but was completely reversed after electroconvulsivetherapy. Although typical obsessive-compulsive symptoms werepredominant, the case also exhibits differences compared with regularobsessive-compulsive disorder regarding onset and course that arediscussed in the report.
