Abstract

We report the case of a 50-year-old man who exhibited transient left hemiparesis (Todd’s paralysis) after electroconvulsive therapy, which completely resolved within 10 minutes. Subsequent neurological evaluation was unremarkable for discrete etiologies for this event, other than Todd’s paralysis. We review the literature of this phenomenon in association with electroconvulsive therapy.
