NIH Rare Diseases:43 Conversion disorder is a condition in which a person has blindness, paralysis, or other nervous system symptoms that cannot be explained. symptoms may occur because of emotional distress or psychological problems. they usually begin suddenly after a stressful experience. people are more at risk for a conversion disorder if they also have a medical illness, dissociative disorder, or personality disorder. psychotherapy and stress management training may help reduce symptoms. the affected body part or physical function will need physical or occupational therapy until the symptoms disappear. last updated: 5/21/2014

MalaCards: Conversion Disorder, also known as hysterical neurosis, conversion type, is related to anorexia nervosa and anxiety disorder. An important gene associated with Conversion Disorder is GAD1 (glutamate decarboxylase 1 (brain, 67kDa)), and among its related pathways are Circadian entrainment and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. The compounds pyridoxal 5-phosphate and dopac have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and myeloid, and related mouse phenotypes are taste/olfaction and behavior/neurological.

Disease Ontology:8 A somatoform disorder that involves numbness, blindness, paralysis or fits without a neurological cause.
