Acta clinica Croatica, Vol.46 No.3 September 2007. -

A female patient showed a clinical picture of a pure, primary form of erotomania, i.e. de Clérambault syndrome. The condition had been developing for ten years before the first treatment attempt, which was unsuccessful until psychotherapy was combined with the antipsychotic risperidone at a maintenance dose of 4 mg a day. In addition to risperidone, the antidepressant fluoxetine was used at a dose of 20 mg a day. The patient was treated in both inpatient and outpatient settings. After six months of treatment her mental condition improved significantly.
