Abstract: A 64-year-old man, diagnosed with recurrent depression, developed a neuroleptic malignant syndrome (nms) during treatment with olanzapine and mirtazapine. Psychotropic drugs were discontinued. Supportive therapy in an intensive care setting was initiated and electroconvulsive therapy (ect) was administered, after which the patient recovered. This case report discusses the place of ect in the treatment of nms.
