Self‐mutilation in non‐human mammals is a well‐established, although not a widely known phenomenon, which has been reported under zoo and laboratory conditions. In macaque monkeys, laboratory rearing and isolation are important predisposing factors, and the more serious self‐injury is initiated by some immediate stimulating event. It is commonly accompanied by behaviour normally shown by the animal in a flghting context. Lower mammals are also known to mutilate themselves under laboratory… 
Self-injurious Behavior: Nonhuman Primate Models for the Human Condition
Publisher Summary Self-injurious behavior (SIB) is a serious disorder defined as potential or actual physical damage directed towards one's own body without suicidal intent. SIB is often impulsive
Pemoline-induced self-biting in rats and self-mutilation in the deLange syndrome
TLDR
Oral administration of 140 and 220 mg/kg pemoline reliably induced persistent self-biting in rats and this behavior was indistinguishable from stereotyped grooming and its most common target was the medial digits of the foreleg.
Self-injurious behavior in human and non-human primates.
TLDR
Despite the difficulties of drawing inferences from different species, a review of the experimental data on non-human primate self-injury may give researchers fresh insights into the elusive nature of human self- injury.
Self-Inflicted Finger Injury in Individuals With Spinal Cord Injury: An Analysis of 5 Cases
TLDR
This group of 5 patients with complete tetraplegia exhibited heterogeneous medical, social, and cultural characteristics and may be viewed as an extreme variant of nail biting, with potential ominous complications.
Self-injurious Behavior in Zoo Primates
Researchers have long known that social isolation of some primates, particularly in infancy, can lead to the development of abnormal behaviors including self-injurious behavior (SIB). However, SIB
Neurobiological Factors in Self-injurious Behavior
Self-injurious behavior is a relatively infrequent problem in the general population but a serious one, particularly when it occurs in severely retarded and psychiatrically disturbed individuals. The
Assessment and Treatment of Self-Injurious Behavior
The immediate trauma and chronic risks associated with self-injurious behavior (SIB) make it perhaps the most dramatic behavior disorder among individuals diagnosed with autism and related
The biological basis for self-injury in the mentally retarded
Abstract Self-injurious behavior has presented a clinical and academic challenge to both behavioral and biomedical researchers. Recent advances in biomedical research suggest a number of specific

TLDR
The primary aim of this paper is to relate existing observations on self-injury in animals toSelf-injurious states in man to establish a biological basis for these states.
Self-aggressive behaviour in monkeys
Self-aggression (SA) in nonhuman primates is a deviant form of aggression which involves threats and physical attacks directed towards the self. SA sometimes causes tissue damage, but usually the

TLDR
Several microorganisms, including Mycoplasma pulmonis and Pasteurella pneumotropica, were isolated from the tympanic bullae and a probable association of the cutaneous lesions with suppurative otitis media was revealed.

TLDR
The behavior of pubescent monkeys reared in the ordinary laboratory environment, as were the restricted subjects of the earlier experiment, is compared with the behavior of monkeys exposed from infancy to a more severe form of environmental restriction.
