    Various reports from Asia, including Hong Kong, Singapore, India, China, and Malaysia, have referred to the syndrome of koro, or suo-yang. This syndrome occurs either singly or in epidemics and is characterized by acute and prominent panic-like symptoms brought about by the sudden onset of fear that one's genitalia are retracting into the abdomen and that this will result in death. In contrast, reports from Asia suggest that koro presents as a generally benign, time-limited illness without association to additional psychopathology and with a good prognosis.
