Conversion disorder is characterized by the loss of one or several neurological functions, with no apparent organic cause. In such cases, vision may be compromised in up to 5% of the patients in ophthalmologic emergencies. Hypnosis is a suggestion technique that has been used for years in the treatment of conversion disorder with positive results. Reported here is the case of a patient with conversion disorder, blindness, and deafness type whose evolution was satisfactory after one session of hypnotherapy.
