    Abstract

    Grunting may be a symptom that may be seen as a part of somatoform, conversion, and tic disorders. The symptom is distressing to both the patient and relatives around the patient. We present herewith the case of a 14-year-old adolescent girl who was referred to our outpatient department with psychogenic grunting and responded well to medications.
