Abstract [en]

In this prospective study, 30 patients with motor conversion disorder were assessed for key psychiatric and demographic variables. At reassessment 2 to 5 years later, 19 patients had completely recovered and 8 patients had improved, whereas only 3 were unchanged or worse. Contrary to other follow-up studies, none of the patients received a rediagnosis of neurological disease. The presence of a personality disorder and overall personality pathology, particularly within cluster C, the presence of a concomitant somatic disease, low DSM-IV Axis V score, and high score on the Becks Hopelessness Scale proved to be associated with poor outcome.
