In this paper, I examine a Culture Bound Syndrome called pibloktoq that occurs in the circumpolar region. I discuss the history, symptoms, and native and non-native explanations for the disease. Using this information I propose reasons for the continued lack of knowlegde on pibloktoq and future research that may increase our body of knowledge.
