Brain damage, due to cortical atrophy, brain tumor, epileptic foci, temporal lobectomy, or concussion, is most frequently associated with hyposexuality in males. Sometimes, hypersexuality and atypical sexual interests may be present, as exemplified in a case of a man who developed a paraphilia for his stepdaughter's breasts following traumatic frontal brain injury. Treatment with medroxyprogesterone acetate (Depo-Provera ®) was successful in ameliorating symptoms over a followup period of two years. Prior treatment with anticonvulsant medication, cognitive and behavioral retraining, individual and family psychotherapy had been unsuccessful.
