摘要

Psychogenic unconsciousness is a rare cause of failure of prompt recovery from general anesthesia. The diagnosis is only made by exclusion of other conditions. We describe a young, healthy female who failed to wake up promptly after total intravenous anesthesia with alfentanil and propofol. She regained consciouness 24 hours later without any specific treatment. However she sustained amnesia for a period of 48 hours. Dissociative disorder was diagnosed after an extensive workup. This case report emphasizes the importance of inclusion of psychiatric disorder in the differential diagnosis should unexplainable delayed emergence from general anesthesia occur.
