The author describes a male patient with obsessive homosexual pedophilic fantasies treated with psychotherapy and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA), a progestin with antiandrogen activity. Long-acting MPA was administered for a 2-month period and caused a prompt and drastic reduction in fantasies and in the anxiety and depression generated by them. MPA was observed to have psychological benefits that outlived its physiologic activity.
