Abstract:   (300 Views)
Background: Few studies have investigated catatonia or adequately elucidated its epidemiology or pathophysiology. Catatonia is a debilitating neuropsychiatric syndrome. 
Case presentation: In this case report, we present a 15-year-old boy who was brought to the emergency room with weakness, gait disturbance, and urinary incontinence.
Conclusion: The findings of this investigation indicate that in cases where medicinal intervention has proven ineffective, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) seems to be a commendable substitute form of treatment.
