Abstract: The increase in plasma prolactin during electroconvulsive therapy, as a reflection of cerebral stimulation, has been much studied. We report, for the first time, the case of a man with depression experiencing hyperprolactinemia and galactopoiesis induced by ECT with the results of the plasma levels of homovanillic acid and 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol.
