Abstract

A combined psychological and pharmacological treatment of an adolescent boy with exhibitionism and indecent assault is presented. After taking lithium the boy reported to suffer less ffom his obsession with exhibitionism and to feel less urge to act out his para- philic phantasy. It seemed that lithium thereby facilitated psychological intervention.
