Memory-related effects of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) are known to appear immediately after the treatment. The case of a 39-year-old woman who underwent a course of ECT because of a recurrent major depressive disorder is described. After a symptom-free period of 48 hours, transient amnesia developed. Her condition appeared to be associated with the electroconvulsive therapy, thereby raising questions about its pathogenicity and management.
