Pathological gambling (PG) represents the end spectrum of gambling behaviours. It is characterised by constantly recurring gambling behaviour which is maladaptive. This case illustrates how an Asian woman pathological gambler progresses through the different stages of development of the gambling habit, and how a multi-modal treatment approach has helped her regain psychosocial function. In addition, the maintenance factors, typical and atypical associated features, and difficulties in the management of such a case are highlighted.
