Case Report: PDF OnlyMcKinney Parish M.D.; Kellner, Charles M.D.Convulsive Therapy: 1997 - p 269-273 Buy Abstract Summary: We report a 19-year-old woman who received electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) late in the course of neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). She received at least two sessions with multiple ECT and had a full recovery. We suggest that multiple seizures may optimize ECT treatment in NMS. Received February 3. 1997: accepted June 2. 1997.
