Abstract

In a chart review of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) attending a university clinic, ECT was prescribed for five subjects (1.2%), only because of severe intervening manic (N=1) or depressive episodes (N=4). Although affective symptoms improved in four of the five patients, OCD symptoms remained unchanged (N=3) or transiently worsened (N=2).
