The extremely rare cerebral neurological condition known as Klüver-Bucy syndrome is characterized by damage to both temporal lobes, impairments in memory, social and sexual functioning, and odd behaviors.
1. The impulse to examine everything, excessive oral propensities, hypermetamorophobia, memory loss, emotional changes, exaggerated sexual behavior, apathy, placidity, visual distractibility, and visual agnosia are some of the major symptoms that may be present (difficulty identifying and processing visual information).
2. Additionally, a seemingly insatiable desire may be seen. Other signs and symptoms of dementia (loss of reason) may exist as well.
3. The brain's temporal lobes suffer damage that leads to Klüver-Bucy syndrome. This could be brought on by brain trauma, various degenerative brain conditions, tumors, or some types of brain infections, the most common of which being herpes simplex encephalitis (a viral brain infection).
4. The extremely rare condition Klüver-Bucy syndrome affects both sexes equally.
