When Disease Hijacks the Brain


Learn about the most insightful article Dr Lazzara has ever read in a research journal.

In September, the journal Neurology published an article titled “The Terrorist Inside My Husbands Brain,” written by Susan Schneider Williams, the widow of Robin Williams.

It is a personal and heartbreaking account of the journey, experienced by two loving people as they navigated through the uncertainty and misdiagnosis associated with Lewy body disease.

There is no finger-pointing; it was written for neurologists, “for you,” as Ms. Williams states at the beginning. Its purpose was “to help you understand your patients along with their spouses and caregivers a little more,” to share a personal and tragic story with you . . . that may help to “make a difference in the lives of others,” she states.
