Abstract

The spectrum of hysterical or functional gait disorders in 47 patients is discussed. Some patients experience a single episode or a transient monoparesis of one leg, but there are patients who are left with a chronic paraplegia. To characterize neurological symptoms for which no organic origin can be demonstrated, we prefer the term "functional". The reasons for using this term are discussed.
