Proposals by psychiatrists to reclassify conversion disorder in DSM-5 and ICD-11 are proving difficult and controversial. Patients with conversion disorder usually present initially to neurologists, who often use different concepts and terminology. History and clinical practice suggest that the way forward is to seek agreed principles and a common understanding between the two disciplines, preferably in a single universal classification.
