Authors: Selim El-Badri, Adrian Leathart

ABSTRACT
Koro syndrome is a culture-related psychiatric disorder which is endemic in South-East Asia and is characterised by the sudden development of fear that one’s penis is shrinking into the abdomen and may result in death. A number of cases with Koro-like symptoms have been reported among Caucasians in association with a variety of neuropsychiatric pathology. This case report describes a case of Koro-like symptoms associated with schizophrenia in a 66 years old male European living in a Western Country.
