Abstract

The Klüver-Bucy syndrome is characterized by psychic blindness or visual agnosia, blunted affect, hypermetamorphosis, hyperorality, bulimia, and sexual behavioral alterations. To date, there have been fewer than 10 reported cases of Klüver-Bucy syndrome in children, most of them irreversible. We describe here a reversible case of the complete Klüver-Bucy syndrome in a child suffering from Shigella encephalopathy.
