Otistik spektrum bozukluklar (OSB) tanılı çocuk ve ergenlerde kompulsif davranışlara sık olarak rastlanmaktadır. Psikotrop ilaçların OSB’ye eşlik eden kompulsif davranışlar, stereotipik hareketler ve agresyon belirtilere faydalı olabildiği gösterilmiştir. Bu olgu sunumunda valproatın kesilmesine bağlı rebound kompulsif davranışlar gelişen ergen bir otistik olgu tartışılacaktır.
