ABSTRACT: Self-injurious behaviors are common, distressing features of developmental disorders. Safe and effective therapies are needed, and the pathophysiology is not well understood. We present a young man with autism who developed self-injurious behaviors due to frontal lobe seizures that resolved with phenytoin.
