Dissociative fugue in the elderly.
ABSTRACT Dissociative fugue is a rarely reported diagnostic entity. It is one of the least understood and yet clinically one of the most fascinating disorders in Mental Health. Here, we describe a case of fugue in a 62-year-old housewife who was brought to our hospital with pockets of memory loss. This case illustrates the need for timely referrals, which could channelize valuable professional time and help avoid expensive and unnecessary investigations.
