Abstract: Although there is a large amount of literature indicating the effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for treatment-resistant major depressive disorder (trMDD),1 the authors did not find any literature supporting rTMS for MDD with the comorbid condition of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here, we report an original case of a patient whose trMDD and PTSD remitted using rTMS at the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
