There is a scant report in the literature on conversion disorder in children. These investigators are not aware of any report of this condition among Nigerian children. This could be because this condition is easily missed thus, creating the impression that conversion disorder is rare. This paper presents three cases of Nigerian children who manifested with features consistent with conversion disorder. This communication aims to highlight the need to consider this condition in children, especially those with difficult to explain symptoms.
