Ms. M is a 55 year old, single, white female who sustained a severe head injury in 1988. Apparently, the patient's boyfriend hit her in the right occipital parietal lobe, causing massive injury which required several operations and caused significant cognitive and behavioral problems. During the last 22 years, she has been in and out of hospitals for surgeries and rehabilitation. The patient resides with her mother and has had inter-personal conflicts mostly caused by her impulsivity, temper, compulsions and agitation. We treated this patient originally on the rehabilitation unit and she followed with her treating neurologist after discharge. The patient was referred by her treating neurologist for neuropsychological assessment. After we had concluded the testing we had suggested to the patient's doctor to try our Depakote treatment. The patient responded to treatment within a few days and was recently in our local newspaper as "mother and daughter who work together happily" in the mother's business.

Discussion

We have tried this treatment on more than 20 patients so far, and have had only one case in which a demented older patient became too drowsy. In all other patients, the treatment was totally successful.

This study was originally conducted five years ago, however Because of my illness and travel abroad it was not published at that time.

Acknowledgements:

My dear colleagues: Dr Timothy Hagen, Neurologist, Jay Berke M. D. -- Neurologist, and Ayed Nashawati M.D, Pulmonologist, were extensively involved in every step of this study, and I am grateful for all of their contributions.
