Background and aim: In spite of high prevalence of conversion disorder, there is no widely acceptable effective treatment for it. In this study, we compared four ways of treatment in acute conversion disorder and it’s recurrent after one month. Methods: In a clinical trial study, we selected 80 patients with acute conversion disorder using simple sampling method. They were divided randomly into four treatment groups. (Suggestion, simple muscle relaxation, hypnosis, and diazepam injection) The speed of syndrome elimination, recovery frequency, and one month’s recurrence were compared. The results were analyzed with chi-square, Fisher’s exact test and ANOVA. Results: Mean recovery time was significantly less in muscle relaxation group compared to the hypnosis and diazepam injection groups (P<0.05). In patients with co-morbidity, the mean recovery time was shorter than the mean recovery time in none co-morbidity (P<0.05). There was no significant relation between one month recurrent and way of treatment or other variables. Conclusion: All four ways of treatments bring significant recovery, but in muscle relaxation, recovery is faster than hypnosis and diazepam infusion
Keywords: Conversion disorder, Diazepam, Suggestion, Muscle relaxation, Hypnosis.
