Background: Pedophilia is a paraphilia subtype and it is rarely reported as hypersexuality manifestation in bipolar patients. Various studies have evaluated the co-occurrence of paraphilia disorders with bipolar disorders. Since the prognosis and treatment of pedophilia as a disorder and pedophilia as just a sign are completely different, the present case report is of particular importance. Case Report: The reported case was a 45-year-old man with pedophilia referred to the psychiatric center. The examination revealed that the patient was suffering from the bipolar disorder. In mania phases, he developed pedophilia behaviors and such behaviors were completely resolved with the control of the bipolar disorder through drug therapy. Conclusion: Pedophilia can be a symptom associated with mood disorders; therefore, it is important to be considered in the prognosis and treatment of such form of pedophilia.
