Social Work Exam and Culture: Dhat Syndrome

Next up in our survey of culture-specific mental health complexes: Dhat Syndrome. Wikipedia summarizes:
Dhat syndrome is a condition found in the cultures of the Indian subcontinent in which male patients report that they suffer from premature ejaculation or impotence, and believe that they are passing semen in their urine.
Simple as that. Good to know for practice, and possibly for the social work licensing exam.
