This paper presents a case of conversion disorder characterized by sensory paralysis that involved the right half of the body, a motor deficit consisting of permanent contracture in flexion of fingers 2-5 of the right hand (clenched fist syndrome), and a visual alteration compatible with homonymous hemianopia and amblyopia. The patient initially presented a clinical picture of depression as well as frequent gynecological disorders. The author evaluates important aspects of the psychogenesis of the clinical picture and emphasizes the identifying aspects and primary and secondary gains.

Cervical manipulation, specifically chiropractic manipulation, is an important cause of vertebrobasilar and occasionally carotid distribution strokes. Neuro-ophthalmologic findings are a common and at times relatively isolated feature of cervical manipulation-induced stroke. A case of chiropractic-induced occipital lobe infarction with homonymous hemianopsia is reported, and the literature regarding neuro-ophthalmologic findings is reviewed.
