Patients with early total deafness frequently present with impulsive, aggressive behavior. Nine such inpatients were treated with Lithium. Two acting out adolescents showed a response to medication and a third personality disorder was dropped for side reactions. Of six schizophrenics, five responded in terms of aggressive behavior, while requiring continued medication with phenothiazines at notably lowered doses for their schizophrenic pathology.
