Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Sir: Priapism is sustained and painful erection that may be seen as an adverse effect of atypical antipsychotics, including risperidone and olanzapine. Although it is relatively rare, its incidence may be increased through polypharmacy. We report the case of a 37-year-old man who developed priapism during concomitant administration of risperidone, olanzapine, and fluvoxamine.
