The article presents a case report of comorbidity between bipolar disorder and Asperger syndrome in a 23-year-old woman. In the patient since adolescence, abnormal behavior and social functioning were observed, further accompanied by symptoms meeting the criteria for a diagnosis of bipolar disorder type II. Once the final diagnosis was established and treatment consistent with reports from the literature was introduced, it resulted in significant improvements of the psychiatric status. One and a half years after the last affective episode, the patient is continuing her academic activity (study of law) at a university in a foreign country.
