TEJADA, Paola Andrea  e  ESCOBAR-CORDOBA, Franklin. Insanity and the Risk of Violence. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2005, vol.34, suppl.1, pp.104-115. ISSN 0034-7450.

This paper presents a case report of insanity defense in relation to the crime of personal injuries. The patient is interned under safety measures in a private clinic. Estimation of the risk of violence in this case, has allowed the individual to integrate progressively with the social milieu. The evaluation of the risk of violence is a difficult task that is not exclusive of forensic psychiatrists, since on occasions it must also be done by general psychiatrists. The majority of the existing literature comes from the legal arena, where it applies to patients who have previously committed a crime and is necessary to define the risk of the violent event presenting again.

Palavras-chave : Insanity defense; case report; risk factors; violence.
