Abstract

Maintenance electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) can sometimes be the only treatment that yields extended periods of euthymia to patients with severe, treatment-resistant mania. We describe a case of a patient with recurrent and severe mania who responded acutely to ECT after failing various medication trials and could only maintain euthymia with maintenance ECT.
