  1. Surgery and medical treatment in persistent somatizing patients.

    Article - En anglais

    This study describes the utilization of surgical operations, frequency and outcome of medical and surgical treatment in a group of persistent somatizers compared with a control group of non-somatizers.

    The study was carried out using the Danish national medical register to identify persons in the general population (age range 17-49 yr) with at least 10 general admissions during an 8-yr period.

    Persistent somatizers were defined as persons with more than six medically unexplained general hospital admissions in their lifetimes before 1985.

    Conversely, non-somatizers were patients whose admissions could mainly be ascribed to well-defined somatic disorders.
