Oedipism in West Texas: A case series
We report two cases of bilateral attempted self-enucleation with severe sequalae following the traumatic events. Case 1 involves an incarcerated schizophrenic patient who presented multiple times following failed enucleation attempts before finally succeeding with bilateral enucleation. Case 2 is an acutely psychotic individual who successfully enucleated their left eye with attempted removal of the right eye. They developed a massive ischemic stroke immediately following the traumatic event. We also discuss other complications, management, and prevention.
