Özet

Brain lesion is a major risk factor for the development of psychiatric symptoms. There is an association between lesion type, location, and psychiatric symptoms. Common psychiatric comorbidities of brain lesions include affective, cognitive, and behavioral disorders; therefore, organic causes should be carefully investigated by clinicians and treatment regimens planned by considering organic causes. In this report, two patients with left temporal lesions, who developed atypical psychiatric symptoms, are described and the distinctive features of their diagnoses are summarized.
