In a new piece for the New Republic, Dr. Steven Beutler, a physician with over 30 years practicing medicine, specializing in infectious diseases, lays out a potential medical theory for Donald Trump's bizarre behavior: neurosyphilis.Neurosyphilis, which results from untreated syphilis, manifests itself 10-30 years after initial infection and causes "irritability, loss of ability to concentrate, delusional thinking, and grandiosity."Additionally, "memory, insight, and judgment can become impaired. Insomnia may occur. Visual problems may develop, including the inability of pupils to react to the light. This, along other ocular pathology, can result in photophobia, dimming of vision, and squinting."Beutler argues, "all of these things have been observed in Trump."He also notes, "If indeed Trump has neurosyphilis, he’d be in famous company. Al Capone had it. So did composers Frederick Delius and Franz Schubert. Many others were suspected of having it, including Hitler, Mussolini, and Ivan the Terrible."Read the full piece here: http://bit.ly/2l2Emgc
