I am searching for a disease and I need help.

No, I do not want this disease. My brother is writing a book and I am researching things for him. Anyway, one of the charactors in his book has a psychological condition in which he can only eat human flesh. He believes that to not eat humans would make him old dead before his time. I know this is a true condition, but I can't find it. Does anyone know? I'm searching for the true terminology and any background I can get. Thanks

Thank you. that gets me close. In truth this is my fault. My brother is writing book and one of the charactors in this book has this problem. I told Darren that I saw this on an episode of CSI and he asked me to find the clinical name for it. Sigh...I can't find it. This is close but not there. Thanks for trying to help.

I'm not really sure but try Clinical Lycantrophy or Porphyria. Although these disorders are associated with werewolves (Clinical lycantrophy) and vampirism (porphyria), they are psychologically and pathologically existent but very rare. I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but i hope it helps. Or you could try to searh for the DSM-IV for psychological disorders like that you have described.
