PMID:  8732418     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A dysfunctional posture of the hand could be due to an anatomical disorder or a conversion reaction. A conversion reaction implies that an unconscious intrapsychic conflict is expressed in a physical dysfunction. Treatment of dysfunctional postures due to conversion reactions is often difficult, and case reports are used to outline management. The need for a multidisciplinary approach is stressed.
