Parkinson's disease (PD) is known to have associated nonmotor manifestations including psychiatric symptoms such as depression and psychosis. Catatonia has been reported extremely rarely in patients of PD. The case described here is a rare example of catatonia in a patient with PD with psychosis. Treatment with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) brought improvement in symptoms of both PD and catatonia. ECT appears to be an effective treatment option in patients of PD, especially with psychiatric manifestations.
