Abstract

We describe the clinical picture and one-year follow-up in a 55-month-old boy who developed a constellation of behavioral/emotional symptoms with sudden onset following meningoencephalitis. He was given the diagnosis of Kluver-Bucy and frontal syndrome. His behavioral symptoms responded to the combination of methylphenidate and risperidone better than either medication alone. Herein, we discuss the clinical and pathophysiological aspects in this case. (Archives of Neuropsychiatry 2012; 49: 163-166)
