Hysteria in the therapeutic practice
In clinical practice, hysterical, neurological and somatic symptoms are often observed. Until now, these patients were classified as "difficult patients". The article presents the current classification of hysterical disorders, according to International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition. We described the typical hysteria neurological manifestations: seizures, paresis, walking disturbances and hyperkinesis. We distinguished features of hysterical symptoms observed in therapeutic practice. We presented diagnostic criteria for psychogenic pain, characteristics of hysterical gastro-intestinal and respiratory disorders, psychogenic fever and hemorrhagic syndromes. The possibilities of pharmaco-and psychotherapeutic approaches to treatment of hysterical syndromes are discussed.
