Sir: In this case report, we describe a patient with a DSM-IV diagnosis of conduct disorder resulting in aggression and violent behavior whose symptoms were controlled with gabapentin after he had failed a trial of divalproex sodium. There is one previously published report1 of gabapentin in the treatment of mania, but we found no cases describing its use in aggression related to conduct disorder.​
