Abstract

The case of a ten-year-old boy with a two-year history of trichotillomania and depression is presented. Imipramine was unsuccessful in treating trichotillomania and showed limited success in alleviating depression. Treatment with low-dosage fluoxetine (10 mg daily) led to marked improvement of both trichotillomania and depression.
