Amok

Did you know that…..

Amok, or “Running Amok“, is a syndrome first described in Malaya ?

Amok was recognized later in other parts of the world, for instance, in the Philippines and in some africans country.

This syndrome occurs in males who have  schizoid personality. During a short prodromal period  these persons become even more withdrawn than usual. All of a sudden, they jump up, yell and kill some people or animals.

After the episodes they show complete amnesia.
