Abstract: Two clinical cases of children with Heller syndrome (childhood disintegrative disorder) are presented. They showed, during the first seven years of live, an initial normal motor and cognitive development, which was followed by a marked regression in communicational and social performance. A review on clinical and neurobiological aspects of Heller syndrome is presented. A curious overlap of Heller syndrome symptoms and many aspects of the Kluver-Bucy syndrome was noted. Spect scans showed in one case a frontal hyperperfusion and in the other case a left mesotemporal hypoperfusion. Further studies using control groups, larger samples and functional and structural neuroimage will improve the present knowledge on the neurophysiological process of Heller syndrome, and properly evaluate the possible involvement of temporolimbic structures in this condition.
