Abstract

Secondary mania has been described in association with a variety of physical conditions. While there have been a number of reports of mania occurring in individuals with intracranial cerebral lesions, there have been few reporting its occurrence in association with non-penetrating cerebral trauma. Two further cases of mania following non-penetrating head injury and the efficacy of ECT in its management are reported, and a brief review of the literature relating to the subject is given.
