PMID:  17381036     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of a 29-year-old man with schizoaffective disorder in which diabetes mellitus and hypertriglyceridemia developed with quetiapine (Seroquels). We reviewed the literature on the relationship between antipsychotic therapy and development of metabolic disorders and found serious concerns. This case demonstrates the importance of a careful monitoring of glucose and other metabolic parameters in patients receiving atypical antipsychotics.
