Recognition of Asperger’s Syndrome in adolescent patient with bipolar disorder: a case report

Serap Oflaz, Hasan Bozkurt, Hülya Güveli, Sevda Gümüş.

Abstract
Asperger’s syndrome (AS) is a pervasive developmental disorder characterized by impairment in social interaction and restricted repetitive behaviors or interests. This disorder is rarely recognized in adolescence or adulthood especially because of unawareness for AS among clinicians and the confounding effects of the comorbid psychiatric conditions. Diagnosing this neurodevelopmental disorder is critical for optimal treatment approaches. Here we present a seventeen-year-old boy with bipolar disorder and late-diagnosed AS.

Key words: Asperger’s syndrome, bipolar disorder, adolescence
