Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The case of a 20 year old autistic woman with disabling repetitive behaviour that responded dramatically to treatment with fluvoxamine is reported. The connection between repetitive symptoms in autism and obsessive-compulsive disorder is considered, and the need for further evaluation of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in autism is discussed.
