Kluver-Bucy syndrome is a disorder of bilateral anterior lobe lesions, such as bilateral amygdala lesions. It can be caused by traumatic brain injury, stroke, HSV encephalitis, and other CNS infections (listeria, tuberculosis). 

Symptoms most commonly include hyperorality, hypersexuality, and hypermetamorphosis (excessive attentiveness to visual stimuli with a tendency to touch stimulus). 

Kluver-Bucy syndrome is mainly a clinical diagnosis but MRI and EEG can be useful in identifying disease severity. Treatment focus on managing symptoms.
