Sir: This letter reports a Japanese patient with koro who was treated with the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) fluvoxamine. To the author’s knowledge, SSRI treatment of koro has previously been reported in only 1 case, in which the use of citalopram, 10 mg/day, was described by Hallak et al.
