We present the case of a 28-year-old male with a history of a severe closed head injury who successfully underwent electroconvulsive therapy for treatment of his depression. A detailed neuropsychological evaluation demonstrated the cognitive tolerability of the treatment. We review the literature on electroconvulsive therapy and brain injury.
