Abstract

Dissociative disorders are usually a result of trauma and stress. They may stem from chronic trauma such as repeated episodes of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse or may follow acute trauma. Dissociative symptoms such as possession states following trauma have been described in the literature, especially inchildren and adolescents. This article highlights three case reports where patients with PTSD presented with dissociative symptoms following significant traumatic events.
