ABSTRACT
The diagnosis and treatment of a child's somatic disorder, fundamental as it may be, is but a part of the pediatrician's function. With a sick child, the physician always finds himself confronted with a complex situation where psychological interrelations play a determining role. This article attempts to analyze the subjective experiences of the various protagonists involved in the drama which occurs when a child is suffering from chronic nephropathy, and when, during the course of a long evolution, there appears the possibility of a fatal prognosis. It relates how the child's relationships with himself and with others are modified by his illness. It also describes the mother's relations with the pediatrician.
