Abstract

Isolated symmetric damage to the amygdalae and their cortical connections occurred in an individual following cancer treatment. The lesions were imaged after reversal of hyponatremia. The patient displayed marked behavioural changes including visual agnosia, hypersexuality, hyperorality, a tendency to react to every visual stimulus, and memory deficits. The cluster of neurobehavioral symptoms is similar to previously reported accounts of Kluver-Bucy syndrome and suggests the importance of bilateral amygdala involvement in these behavioral changes.
