Misophonia is a condition that is triggered by certain sounds, which leads to unpleasant feelings such as anger, disgust, fear. Misophonia can severely affect patients' daily activities, social life, and interpersonal relationships. For these reasons, lately, misophonia is being recommended to be defined as a psychiatric disorder lately. Here we represent a case with misophonia and discuss the application of the cognitive behavioral psychotherapy as a treatment in an individual with misophonia. Although not being defined as a psychiatric diagnosis, many individuals are suffering from misophonia, and for these individuals, cognitive behavioral psychotherapy seems to be beneficial as a treatment option.
