A case report is presented of a koro-like syndrome in a 34-year-old Bedouin man living in the Negev desert in Israel. The patient's disturbance is accompanied by voyeurism and the onset appears to be related to his sexual practices. This is the first reported case among Bedouins, who are an Arab nomadic tribe living in Asia and Africa.
