MECA GARCIA, José Miguel; FERNANDEZ-MIRANDA LOPEZ, Sergio; COLLADO RUEDA, Fernando  and  VAZQUEZ GUTIERREZ, Fernando. Spongiform encephalopathy: a conversive disorder?. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.124, pp.785-789. ISSN 2340-2733.

Prionpathies represent a group of neurodegenerative diseases of familiar, sporadic or acquired origin, heterogeneous symptoms and fatal outcome. The psychiatric symptoms can be present at the beginning and/or during the clinical evolution, with the presence or not of neurological disorders. Patients with these sympthoms are referred to psychiatric units, both at hospital level and as outpatients, to study a psychiatric disorder. In the described clinical case, the patient was admitted several times at emergency units, rated by neurologists and psychiatrists leading to different psychiatric disorders diagnoses. However spongiform encephalopathy was diagnosed only during the last month of the disease.

Keywords : dissociative disorder; conversive disorder; spongiform encephalopathy.
