We report a severe case of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) that responded to very high doses of citalopram (160 mg/day) after a poor response to clomipramine 250 mg/day for several years, alone or in combination with buspirone 30 mg/day or flupenthixol 4 mg/day. The patient had previously been submitted for capsulotomy which was declined, probably due to the magical content of her obsessions, which resembled delusions.
