Recurrent neuroleptic malignant syndrome in a man with mild mental handicap



Recurrent neuroleptic malignant syndrome in a man with mild mental handicap



Journal of Intellectual Disability Research 36: 377-381



A case of recurrent neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) occurring in a 29-year-old man with mild mental handicap and a superadded psychotic disorder is described. The case illustrates a number of unusual features such as recurrent episodes and resolution with administration of intravenous Procyclidine. The possibility of NMS occurring in people with mental handicap, who have a high level of neuroleptic drug prescription, must be borne in mind.
