Functional neurological disorders involve motor disorders associated with psychological stressful experiences. This case report describes an 18-year-old woman, who had tumbled severely doing gymnastics and had been through physical rehabilitation. Later, she was referred to a liaison psychiatric clinic and after treatment of a comorbid depression admitted to a specialised department of neurology. The treatment consisted of a combination of physiotherapy and psychological intervention. The first days she was lifted to the pool but after three weeks she walked and rode the bicycle normally. At control three months later, she was still free of symptoms.
