Hysterical paralysis is an uncommon type of conversion disorder. It can be difficult to diagnose. In cases in which symptoms are difficult to explain neuroanatomically or are functionally inconsistent, hysteria should enter into the differential diagnosis. We report a case of hysterical paralysis that had rapid improvement using physical therapy and antidepressant therapy.
