Dr. Altschuler on … famous character’s ailments

AltschulerEricFollowing Improbable’s recent note about Dr. Altschuler’s Ice Cream Headache Inducement Method we turn now to his work on famous character’s ailments.

Eric Altschuler, M.D., Ph.D., who is currently Associate Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, New Jersey Medical School and Associate Professor of Microbiology & Molecular Genetics, New Jersey Medical School, has written extensively on this broad subject – examining the question, for example – did the biblical figure Samson (son of Manoah, Judges, chapters 13-16,) suffer from antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) ? To find out, Dr. Altschuler (and colleagues) applied the very same DSM-IV criteria which could be used to diagnose a current-day patient, to records regarding the behaviour of 3000 year-old Samson.

“The DSM-IV requires that 3 of 7 criteria be met for the diagnosis of ASPD. Samson meets 6.“

See : Did Samson Have Antisocial Personality Disorder? Eric Lewin Altschuler, MD, PhD; Ansar Haroun, MD; Bing Ho, MD; Amy Weimer, MD, Archives of General Psychiatry 2001;58(2):202-203.

Dr. Altschuler has also examined the case of  Ezekiel, who may have suffered from epilepsy – see: Did Ezekiel have temporal lobe epilepsy? (2002). Archives of General Psychiatry, 59, 561-562.

Along with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, who could have had substance dependency issues. see: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: A Primer on Substance Dependence Eric Lewin Altschuler, M.D., PH.D.; Daniel Wright, PH.D. Am. J. Psychiatry 2000; 157:484-484.

And Count Dracula, who might have suffered from Hereditary Somnambulism see: letters to the editor: Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, Volume 96 January 2003. (page 2)
