We report a case of a 36-year-old right-handed woman, who, in the 40th week of her first pregnancy, presented light coma which lasted 6 days. When the patient came out of coma she presented very marked oral tendency and hypermetamorphosis resembling the Kluver-Bucy syndrome in man. As sustained in the literature, the lesion showed by CT scan was bilateral and involved mainly the limbic structures in baso-temporal sites. The patient is compared to other cases described in literature.
