The concept of affective disorder occurring as a secondary phenomenon in the course of other illnesses is now well established. With few exceptions, however, the syndrome described is that of depression. Although elevation of mood occurs in association with various drug therapies and manic symptoms have been described in the postencephalitic syndrome, case reports of the complete syndrome of secondary mania are rare. The establishment of the category of secondary mania has considerable diagnostic, etiological, and treatment significance, and it is important to document cases as they occur. The purpose of this paper is to report one such case.
