Abstract
Delayed awakening after general anaesthesia due to psychogenic coma is a phenomenon that rarely presents to the oral and maxillofacial surgeon. A case of psychogenic coma following general anaesthesia for dental extractions is presented here. It is recommended that patients at risk of conversion disorder should be counselled about the risks of psychogenic coma. Early diagnosis of this condition could lead to better patient management.
