Psychiatric comorbidities are commonly encountered in obese patients admitted for bariatric surgery among which major depressive disorder and anxiety disorder are the most common types. Although most studies demonstrate a significant reduction in psychiatric complaints at postoperative follow-up, the relationship or mechanism of such effect is not definitive. We report the emergence of major depressive disorder and anxiety disorder in a 57-year old female patient at sixth-month follow-up with no family history of psychiatric disorder or preoperative psychiatric disorder. Symptomatic control has been achieved with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor therapy. Hereby, we recommend close psychiatric follow-up of bariatric surgery candidates at pre and postoperative periods.
