Impulse control disorders (ICDs), such as hyper sexuality (HS), are well-known in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), especially those treated with dopamine agonists. Although it is unusual, some cases have been published about the association between monoamine oxidase inhibitor type B (MAO-B) and ICD. Here, we report the second case of hyper sexuality in a patient with PD treated de novo with rasagiline alone. Although we found other similar cases regarding selegiline or rasagiline but always in association with other drugs, like dopamine agonists.
