Abstract

Two cases of Kluver-Bucy syndrome following severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), are described during the period of recovery from acute TBI. These patients posed significant management problems, until successfully managed with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). These cases support the benefit of SSRIs in treating associated Kluver-Bucy syndrome.
