abasia

A disorder of coordination affecting the ability to walk, but not caused by paralysis. It is often associated with the inability to stand upright (astasia). People with abasia-astasia retain the full use of the legs while lying in bed, but when placed upright take a few steps then crumple to the ground. The condition is usually a manifestation of HYSTERIA.
