Abstract

This case of classical koro in a 52 year old male describes three essential characteristics, i.e., acute exacerbation of chronic anxiety, fear of genital retraction and fear that the complete disappearance of the organ into the abdomen will result in death. Various etiological, developmental and personality factors in the genesis of anxiety have been discussed. The patient was treated with anxiolytics, antidepressants and dual sex therapy and was followed up for five years.
