[Transcranial magnetic stimulation for comorbid depression in anorexia][Article in German]
A 24-year-old anorexic patient with cormobid symptoms of depression was treated for depression with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) rather than with psychopharmacotherapy, due to her poor physical condition. The depressive symptomatology significantly improved in correlation with two rTMS cycles but occurred again within 2 weeks. A third successful cycle was then followed by a maintenance rTMS protocol with the patient going into remission from depression. This case illustrates that rTMS may be considered as a therapeutic option for comorbid depression in anorectic patients
