Kleptomania is a clinical condition in which the desire to steal different objects cannot be inhibited regardless of value. It is classified as “impulse control disorder” in DSM 5. A 24-year-old patient with alcohol use disorder developed kleptomania after successful treatment. In this case, kleptomania can also be evaluated from the perspective of addiction.
