Major depression with psychotic features (MDP) is the state that major depression is accompanied by delusions and halucinations. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is an important option used in the treatment. Combination of antidepressants and antipsychotics is also adviced as another treatment option. Lack of data about the treatment of MDP with the combination of ECT and an atypical antipsychotic quetiapine is noteworthy to mention. Here, we aimed to report successful and safe treatment of an elderly patient with MDP by the combination of ECT and quetiapine.
