Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder and misophonia seem to be overrepresented in autism spectrum disorder. Literature is mute on psychopharmacotherapy in these complex presentations. Here, authors report on a challenging case of low-functioning ASD child with comorbid ARFID and misophonia that responded favorably to a low-dose risperidone. This is followed by a brief discussion of purported pharmacodynamic mechanisms and relevant literature.
