Özet

Adolescent conduct disorder (CD) is generally hard to manage clinically, as this population often refuses to take oral medications. Families and acquaintances of these adolescents usually suffer from extreme psychological, financial and social difficulties. Oral antipsychotics are the primary drugs of choice clinically, after behavioral treatments. Here we report a case with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and conduct disorder who refuses to take any medications, was not eligible for behavioral treatments and was treated successfully with long acting risperidone.
