Dora is the pseudonym given by Sigmund Freud to a patient whom he diagnosed with hysteria. Her most manifest hysterical symptom was aphonia, or loss of voice. Freud published a famous case study about Dora, Fragments of an Analysis of a Case of Hysteria (1905 [1901], Standard Edition Vol.7, pp1–122).

The patient's real name was Ida Bauer (1882-1945). Ida's brother Otto Bauer was a leading member of the Austromarxism movement.
