We present a case of neuroleptic induced akathisia resistant to traditional drug therapy which improved with electroconvulsive therapy. If confirmed in further cases, these findings call for well designed studies on the efficacy of this treatment, especially in nonresponders to traditional therapy or in a subgroup of patients suffering from akathisia and depression.
