Background : This case report highlights the issue of hyper sexuality as a presenting feature in people with dementia and outlines the possible etiology and challenges associated with inappropriate sexual behavior in dementia. A case of a 75-year-old female with vascular dementia who developed hyper sexuality as a presenting complaint is reported here. The management of this patient included a combination of pharmacological and psychosocial intervention leading to the resolution of her inappropriate sexual behavior and improvement in her relationship with her family members. Inappropriate sexual behaviors need to be recognized and managed without compromising the fulfillment of the human's basic need of sexuality.
