Patient of 32 years old, sent to the psychiatric unit, because he had an aggressive behaviour after he suffered a car accident with a traumatic brain injury. The patient had a huge amount of problems with family, friends and even with police (even being in jail), due to the impulsive conduct the brain injury had created. It was added a self-referential, which produced a disruptive behaviour that he could not avoid, when someone looked at him in a strange way or was not agreeing with him. After the aggressive response, he regretted of his actions, getting to try to commit suicide in several times. It was decided, reaching to an agreement with the patient, to use the paliperidone palmitate long-acting injectable. After the first dose, the patient began to be more serene and calm, the aggressive conducts were reducing until being disappeared, improving his mood and reaching a normal life, with a better relationships with his family and social environment.
