Background: Dissociative identity disorder (DID) is rarely reported in Asia. It is so uncommon that some authors have speculated that DID is a culture-bound syndrome primarily found within Euro-American cultures. The present study was conducted to determine cases of dissociative identity disorder (DID).
Materials & Methods: 25 patients diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID) of both genders were subjected to self-rating measures such as dissociative experiences scale (DES).
Results: Out of 25 patients, males were 13 and females were 12. The mean DES score was 6.5 in males and 6.1 in females. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05).
Conclusion: Both males and female shad high DES score.
