    A body with a focal lesion of the right cingulum, subjected to cingulectomy for the removal of a tumour, is the first case of an isolated unilateral cingulum lesion to be reported. The presenting symptoms consisted of serious behavioural abnormalities: lack of social restraint, heightened sexuality, bulimia and aggressiveness, all of which ceased after surgery.
