A mother and two daughters were admitted to the hospital to a psychiatric ward at three subsequent days, because of bizarre behaviour. A few days earlier they suddenly left their home and went into the unknown. They started wandering around together from village to village. At that time the third daughter stayed at home. All four women joined the community of Jehovah's Witnesses, but they were allex cluded several months ago. During hospitalization the mother was diagnosed with paranoid reaction, daughters with psychiatric disorders being of shared psychosis character. The daughters completely recovered.
