Amok Syndrome

In psychiatry, the syndrome Amok is a cultural syndrome or culture-bound syndrome and involves a sudden and spontaneous explosion of wild rage, which makes the affected person run wildly or armed attack, injure or kill indiscriminately to persons that appear in its path, until the subject is immobilized or commited suicide. 

The definition was released by the American psychiatrist Joseph Westermeyer in 1972. According to psychiatrists, the wild murderous attack usually preceded by a period of worry, grief and moderate depression. After the attack, the person is exhausted, sometimes with complete amnesia and eventually, ends up committing suicide.
