OBJECTIVE: There are few safe and effective biological treatments for major depression in adolescents. We aimed to report the use of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) as a treatment for adolescents with this condition. A battery of cognitive tests was also used at several intervals to measure potential change in neuropsychological functioning. RESULTS: Random allocation of both subjects was to active treatment. Both subjects improved to a clinically significant degree with rTMS treatment and reported no adverse effects. Neuropsychological testing did not demonstrate any deterioration in the domains of functioning tested. CONCLUSIONS: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation shows early promise as a treatment for major depression in adolescents.
