Previously undiagnosed dissociative identity disorder (DID) may be present in individuals being assessed for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Previously undiagnosed DID was present in 3.9% of 1,529 general adult psychiatric inpatients in 10 studies conducted in 6 different countries. In this article, a case of likely DID that was missed in a published case report is presented, and guidelines for when to suspect and how to diagnose DID are provided. Such guidelines are missing from the training of many mental health professionals.
