Abstract

Little is known about the prevalence of dissociative disorders in children. Identification of atypical presentations of dissociative disorder in children maybe a challenge, and could lead to misdiagnosis and delay in treatment. Here we present an unusual example of a child with grief and dissociative symptoms, following the loss of a pet dog.
