Abstract

The man had a history of bilateral otitis media and had undergone bilateral myringoplasty at the age of 18 years. At the age of 38 years, he presented with psychiatric symptoms, for which he received risperidone. Following 9.5 years of this treatment, his symptoms worsened for several times due to the discontinuation of treatment. However, after commencing individual treatment with olanzapine 20mg and risperidone 8mg for three weeks each [route not stated], the symptoms persisted.
