The aim of the study was to identify inpatients due to autolytic behavior in the acute psychiatric hospitalization of Dr. R. Lafora Hospital. It is an observational, descriptive and retrospective study. We collected information about patients aged 18 to 64 who were hospitalized during the month of January of 2015 in the acute psychiatric hospitalization by Selene software.
