A 45-year-old housewife diagnosed with DID was treated for 27 months. This patient, one of the first DID cases diagnosed at Istanbul Medical Faculty Hospital, was initially treated mainly under inpatient conditions (six months total hospitalization in three successive admissions). She reached fusion in eight months. The initial presentation form of the patient raised important questions about the interrelationships of hysterical psychosis, childhood trauma, and DID.
