The case of a patient with both, the intermetamorphosis and the Foley syndromes is studied. Both of these syndromes are extremely infrequent and their coexistence in a single patient points up to a common etiopathogenic mechanism. The relevant literature is discussed and a limbic hyperconnection syndrome is proposed to explain the clinical findings as well as the positive response to valproic acid.
