Abstract

Catatonia is a distinct neuropsychiatric syndrome that is becoming more recognized clinically and in ongoing research. It occurs with psychiatric, metabolic, or neurologic conditions. It may occur in many forms, including NMS. Treatment with benzodiazepines or ECT usually leads to a dramatic and rapid response, although systematic randomized trials are lacking. An important unresolved question is the role of antipsychotic agents in treatment and their potential adverse effects.
