The concepts of compulsive sexual behaviour or sexual addiction and treatment of the disorder have been argued over by many investigators. From a scientific point of view, both concepts are still not well established in psychiatric nomenclature. On the other hand, authors point out that compulsive sexual behaviour, obsessive-compulsive disorder and substance addiction show similarities in symptomatology and response to treatment. In this article, the case of a 21-year-old female exhibiting compulsive sexual behaviour since childhood who was treated with a combination of clomipramine and valproic acid is presented and discussed in the light of the relevant literature.
