["Psychogenic" bulbar paralysis].

Abstract

This 58-year-old female presented with a history of difficulties in swallowing for 30 years. No diagnosis was made in spite of repeated investigations including barium-contrast radiography. A probative strumectomy and psychotherapy were unsuccessful. After an episode of major depression the swallowing disturbances increased. In addition the patient complained of mastication difficulties and was dysarthric. Finally, neurological examination and neurophysiological studies established the diagnosis of progressive bulbar palsy.
