ECT for lorazepam-refractory catatonia.
Convuls Ther. 1996 Mar; 12(1):31-5.CT

Abstract

Catatonic syndromes are seen in diverse psychiatric and systemic illnesses, and may have varied presentations. Although reports suggest that benzodiazepines are helpful, debate persists regarding definitive treatment for catatonia. We present a case in which electroconvulsive therapy effectively resolved symptoms in an adolescent patient with catatonia who had only a transient response to lorazepam.
