Catatonia: harbinger of the neuroleptic malignant syndrome.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, University of Cape Town, South Africa.


Five consecutive cases of the NMS are presented, in all of which a catatonic state preceded the onset of the condition. Catatonia would appear to represent a highly significant risk factor for the NMS and a possible causal link between the two disorders is suggested.
