Case Report Open Access


Objective: To study a strange case of agoraphobia.
Method: Patient follows up.
Result: Agoraphobia irrespective of severity can be treated and decreased in intensity by psychiatric intervention and regular follow ups.
Conclusion: We report a case of an agoraphobic woman who was severely agoraphobic to an extent that she did not leave her bed for many years. Continuous and gradual psychotherapy eventually improved her condition. Twenty years later she was able to leave her room which we believe was a grand success for the doctors involved in her treatment. This case study suggests that agoraphobia can be a serious debilitating mental condition and gradual and patient treatment with regular follow ups can improve the patient’s condition.
