The case of a 45-year-old woman admitted to the Psychiatric Department of Aosta Hospital in 1998 with an initial diagnosis of a schizophreniform disorder and subsequently diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia is reported. The patient was first treated with various typical and atypical neuroleptics without any benefit but with serious side effects, and then with quetiapine. Quetiapine did not cause any side effects and was an effective treatment in terms of both psychopathologic improvement and return to social and occupational activities.
