Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a chronic and diversely presented psychiatric condition. Patients of this disorder, sometimes, present such an unusual way that diagnosis becomes very difficult. These patients, later, may face multiple consultations in different specialties or social and legal difficulties. This is the case of an adolescent boy who presented with stealing or pick-up mobile phone and facing social harassment. He was diagnosed as OCD after meticulous psychiatric assessment and treated with fluoxetine along with exposure and response prevention. Significant remission of symptoms of this adolescent was found with the intervention. Unusual presentations of OCD is not unexpected and early identification and treatment can reduce the huge burden of this troublesome psychiatric disorder.
