Abstract

Reactions 1704, p175 - 2 Jun 2018 An episode of ’not responding’ and abnormal posture: case report A man [age not stated] developed abnormal posture and was ’not responding’ following administration of haloperidol [dosage, route, time to reaction onset and outcome not stated]. The man was hospitalised with an episode of ’not responding’. He was in his usual state of health until the night before the admission. Of note, he complained of seeing two women and a dog that were trying to harm him. He held a knife and would not let his daughters come close to him. Subsequently, he was given one pill of haloperidol, which was prescribed by his primary care physician for such abnormal behaviour. The next morning, he was found ’not responding’ by the family, with an abnormal posture in bed, showing his right upper limb adducted, right wrist flexed and hand clenched. His eyes were open and he was not shaking. Work- up in the hospital excluded metabolic, infectious, cardiac and intracranial causes of the current episode. Thus, these symptoms were deemed related to severe sensitivity to Author comment: "Mr. A was diagnosed with . . . severe sensitivity to antipsychotic agents." Hashmi M, et al.
