Through the course of this module you will watch a series of video clips documenting the case history, diagnosis and treatment of a young girl presenting with an unusual illness.


With the help of guided, interactive activities, your task is to evaluate the mysterious case and make a diagnosis. We then offer you an expert diagnosis so that you can see how well you have done.


Finally, we provide some important information regarding the psychiatric and physical symptoms and the different forms of treatment for this illness.
