Maintenance electroconvulsive therapy in autistic catatonia: a case series review.
Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry. 2010 May 30; 34(4):581-7.PN

Abstract

The usage of electroconvulsive therapy for the acute resolution of catatonia in autistic children and adults is a novel area that has received increased attention over the past few years. Reported length of the acute ECT course varies among these patients, and there is no current literature on maintenance ECT in autism. The maintenance ECT courses of three patients with autism who developed catatonia are presented. Clinical, research, legal, and administrative implications for ECT treatment in this special population are discussed.
