Benign Recurrent Febrile Reactions Induced by Electroconvulsive Therapy in an Adolescent Chinese with Catatonic Schizophrenia:A Case Report

Electroconvulsive therapy is a widely practiced, safe and effective treatment for severe mental illness. A febrile reaction induced by electroconvulsive therapy is rarely reported as an adverse effect. We present a 15-year old Chinese girl with first episode catatonic schizophrenia who developed recurrent febrile reactions after electroconvulsive therapy. Vigilant clinical monitoring and laboratory tests are necessary in the management of these cases. The natural course of fever, clinical characteristics and suspected risk factors of this case were discussed.
