Pain and Schizophrenia: About Two Clinical Cases

F. Laboudi MD Phd | A.Ouanass MD


Abstract: Pain is a complex sensation influenced by many psychological, relational and social factors. Perception and / or painful expression may be wrong in the case of certain chronic diseases such as schizophrenia. In this work we report the cases of two patients with schizophrenia who presented during their hospitalization, abnormal reactivity to pain, to better approach the sensitivity to pain during psychiatric illness. The pain of the schizophrenic patient is too often underestimated, undervalued and under-treated while it is part of everyday life. The responses of a schizophrenic patient during a medical examination with pain research must be taken seriously. Clinicians should maintain a high degree of suspicion of serious illness in the evaluation of these patients.
