ABSTRACT
Pro domo: The originality of the present paper consists in the effort to define a presumptive psychological profile (PP) of the patients with functional biliary symptoms (FBS). This attempt might prove useful as psychological interventions aiming this PP may prevent and/or improve these complaints. Objective: Defining a PP of the patients with FBS, as no references on this subject are to be found in literature. Method: The subjects have been patients with various diseases (including FBS). An approximately one-hour talk was conducted with each of them in order to identify their psychological features (PFs) (among 143 possible ones). Thereafter we examined each PF in turn, aiming to find out if and to what degree is it associated with any among the various areas of pathology. Results: The PF most statistically significantly associated with FBS is „jealous, possessive" (without reaching the level of absolute SSnce). The PF „dslikes noise and/or odors" seems also to be characteristically associated with FBS. The PFs „active, energetic", „considers him/herself accused, disrespected, demeaned, offended, humiliated, remonstrated" and „he/she does not persevere in his/her anger" are less characteristically associated with FBS, as they are also associated with others spheres of pathology. The PF „he/she does not retort" might be associated with biliary disorders in general, but its association with FBS is unsure. Conclusions. A possible PP of patients with FBS might have „jealousy and possessivity" as central feature, differring from the PP of patients with structural biliary disorderes by a greater assertiveness.
