  • Abstract  

    Depersonalization-derealization syndrome is an under researched clinical phenomenon and is often under diagnosed. We present a case of 42 years old female, who presented with complaining of feeling that her stomach is always empty in spite of adequate food and water intake for the past 7 months. She also reported that all the emotions, bodily movements appeared as if they are not her own. However, reality testing was intact. Phenomenon of primary depersonalization derealization syndrome is relatively rare. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may be considered as a pharmacological treatment option for the treatment of the condition.
