Abstract

Catatonia is a syndrome that can be treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Hence, onset of catatonia during treatment of patients with ECT is not expected. In this manuscript, a schizoaffective disorder patient with a positive history of traumatic brain injury and no consumption of benzodiazepines is being reported, who became catatonic during ECT.
