Abstract

We report the case of a 15-year-old girl with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who developed a severe steroid-induced depression, which was rapidly responsive to ECT. This report adds to the growing body of literature supporting ECT as a safe and effective treatment of affective and psychotic disorders in children.
