  • TITLE: An Instance of Somatoform Disorder

    AUTHORS: Armando Simon

    KEYWORDS: Therapy; Somatoform Disorder; Prison

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Medical Psychology, Vol.2 No.1, January 28, 2013

    ABSTRACT: A case study is presented of a prison inmate with Somatoform Disorder, a relatively rare type of mental illness. In this particular case symptomatology revolved around his claim that some of his teeth were rotten, resulting in great pain, in spite of several diagnoses by dentists. When said teeth were extracted, inmate would express satisfaction, whereupon several weeks later the same complaint would resurface and the cycle began anew. Of the various types of mental illnesses listed in the DSM, there are some that are infrequently seen [1,2] One of these is Somatoform Disorder, a category of mental illness for which there is a paucity of research, partly due to diagnostic difficulties and controversies [3,4] and we would like to present a case study of just such an instance.
