Satyriasis is a term describing pathologic hypersexuality in males. A 24 year-old male presented with satyriasis. After a search for organic etiology proved unsuccessful, the patient was treated with medroxyprogesterone acetate and psychotherapy with good results. The differential diagnosis, psychodynamics, and treatment are discussed.
