We present a 7-year-old boy with a developmental disorder presenting with severe head banging. Clinical evolution was consistent with diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, stuttering, and Tourette's syndrome. This report emphasizes the overlap between developmental disorder phenotypes. There is a need to understand the natural history and relationship of specific symptoms that occur in developmental disorders to devise effective and appropriate intervention strategies.
