Positive Response to Atypical Antipsychotic Medication Use In Aspergerís Disorder: A Report of Three Cases

›pÁi M, ›nci SB, Akyol ArdżÁ ‹, Ercan ES.

The main characteristics of Aspergerís Disorder might be defined as severe and persistent impairment in social interaction as well as development of restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests and activities; loneliness, unusualness, egocentrism, deficiency of empathy, bizarre interests and specific dependence to objects. In this article we aimed to discuss the efficacy of atypical antipsychotic medication use in three cases with Aspergerís Disorder. Social adaptation increased remarkably in each of the three cases after treatment with an atypical antipsychotic drug. Specific signs of Aspergerís Disorder such as communication problems and failure to develop peer relationships appropriate to the developmental level improved clinically just as nonspecific signs such as hyperactivity, aggressiveness and irritability got better.

Key words: Aspergerís Disorder, atypical antipsychotic, pharmacotherapy.
