Catatonia is a syndrome that includes catalepsy, waxy flexibility, stupor, negativism, mutism, and echolalia. Side effects such as dehydration, malnutrition, constipation, flexion contractors and rhabdomyolysis may develop due to catatonia. Here, we aimed to report a case of globe vesicale associated with catatonia and the successful treatment of this case with benzodiazepine use and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) treatment. As a result, the globe vesicale should be considered in patients presenting with catatonia and if present it should be treated urgently.
Key words: catatonia, globe vesicale, ECT
