Turkish Doctor Cured a Vampire

A Turkish doctor was claiming that he was able to cure a patient who has a fetish on drinking blood.  In a case which is known as “clinical vampirism” a person would experience an unquenchable thirst of blood and pleasure (mostly sexual) in seeing blood.  This incident is common on some of the world’s prolific serial killers.

Dr. Direnc Sakarya was able to create accounts of what happened during those two years of treatment.  And it states:
 “A 23-year-old married male (3rd of 6 siblings) presented with a 2-year history of ‘addiction’ to drinking blood. He used to cut his arms, chest, and abdomen with razor blades to collect the blood in a cup and to drink it. The initial interest in drinking his own blood had subsequently turned to that of others’. These ‘crises’ were characterized by a strong urge to drink blood immediately, ‘as urgent as breathing’. He enjoyed the smell and taste of blood despite finding this ‘foolish’. He also enjoyed biting wounds of others to taste flesh. He was arrested several times after attacking people by stabbing and biting them with the intention of collecting and drinking their blood. He forced his father to obtain blood from blood banks. His ‘thirst’ for blood started after the illness and death of his 4-month-old daughter 3 years earlier. He also associated this condition with the murder of his uncle 4 years earlier which he witnessed and still recalled lucidly. He remembered hugging the dead body and feeling blood smeared on his face. He witnessed another violent murder 3 years earlier when one of his friends cut off the victim’s head and penis.”

The case of the man went from bad to worse as he stab and bite in order to satiate his craving for blood.  The doctors also noted that the patient is showing some signs of schizophrenia and memory loss from time to time.  The rest of the research paper is like a screenplay for a horror movie:

“He stated, ‘there are two me’s in myself ’. He reported seeing a tall man with a black coat younger than him and a 6- to 7-year-old ‘imaginary companion’. The latter forced him to conduct violent acts and suicide, dictating: ‘jump on him’, ‘choke him’, ‘kill yourself’. Seemingly related to these internal dialogues, others observed him talking to himself occasionally. Possibly due to ‘switching’ to another personality state, he was losing track during the ‘bloody’ events, did not care who the victim was anymore, and remained amnesic to this part of his act. 
He had recently realized that this imaginary companion resembled his own childhood. He felt himself to be a ‘slave’ to him.”

His childhood days are full of torment.  His Mother would experience some “break-down” moments and attack him.  When he first arrived in the hospital in search for treatment, the doctors stated that the patient loses all hope and that he can only be cured by taking his life.  The doctors diagnosed him suffering from a lot of mental problems such as DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder), clinical vampirism, post traumatic disorder, alcohol problems etc.  The doctors claimed that the mental issue of the patient was strengthen upon committing a series of crime.
