Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is usually presented with psychiatric symptoms. Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and NPH comorbidity is rare and there are only few case reports on this topic. Our case who had chronic NPH secondary to intracranial hemorrhage presented with obsessive compulsive (OC) symptoms while he was treated at neurology inpatient clinic for epilepsy. He benefited from sertraline and quetiapine treatment. Our case is thought to be the first case in terms of comorbidity of chronic NPH and OC symptoms in Turkey.

Normal basınçlı hidrosefali (NBH) sıklıkla psikiyatrik bulgular sergiler. Obsesif kompulsif bozukluk (OKB) ve NBH komorbiditesi nadirdir ve bu konuda birkaç olgu bildirimi bulunmaktadır. Olgumuz intrakraniyal kanamaya sekonder kronik NBH gelişen ve epilepsi tanısı ile nöroloji servisinde yatışı sırasında obsesif kompulsif (OK) belirtiler sergileyen bir olgudur. Sertralin ve ketiapin tedavisinden fayda görmüştür. Kronik NBH, OK belirtiler komorbiditesi açısından ülkemizde ilk vaka olduğu düşünülmektedir.
Anahtar kelimeler : Epilepsi, normal basınçlı hidrosefali, nörokognitif bozukluk, obsesif kompulsif bozukluk
