Focal parietal necrosis of the sigmoid due to atypical neuroleptics: a case report.


PMID 22870793

Abstract

We present the case of a 26-year-old man with schizoid personality disorder who suffered from a very focal and transparietal necrosis of the sigmoid after an overdose of atypical neuroleptics. This is a singular, rather unknown and potentially lethal side effect of these drugs. The physiopathology of this complication is multifactorial.
