Abstract

Conversion disorder presents with a wide variety of symptoms, one of the rarest presentations being Astasia-Abasia; where the individual loses their ability to stand or walk normally without any apparent anatomic or physiologic abnormality. psychosocial stressors have been observed to closely precede the onset of symptoms. Management of conversion disorders centres around psychoeducation and psychotherapy but the response is slow and varied. This case report describes one such case of a 13-year-old female with Astasia-Abasia who was successfully treated with Faradic stimulation.
