The Kluver-Bucy syndrome (KBS) consists of prominent oral tendencies, emotional blunting, altered dietary habits, hypersexuality, and visual and auditory agnosia. It was first produced experimentally in monkeys; subsequently, many human cases have been reported. The syndrome results from bilateral temporal lobe damage, and is mainly observed in conditions which tend to produce such damage, such as herpes encephalitis, Pick disease, and head injury. A case of KBS associated with psychomotor status epilepticus is reported.
