Behavioural traits of patients with Crohn's disease

Behavioural traits of patients with Crohn's disease

Revista Espanola de Enfermedades Digestivas 86(5): 791-795

The present study describe epidemiology, clinics and psychology of 92 patients with Crohn's Disease. The study has been designed in order to assess the psychological repercussion and the way of life secondary to Crohn's Disease; and assess the relationship between environmental factors and behavioral reactions with the symptomatology. The psychological assessment show higher levels of neurosis (66.9% vs 50%), anxiety (55% vs 50%), depression (49.2 vs 35) and stress (13 vs 10) in these patients than in a normal population. The patients describe stresses related to Crohn's Disease: the disease's severity and chronicity, ineffectiveness of the medical treatment and the limited way of life; 83.9% of patients describe concurrent psychosocial stress not directly attributable to Crohn' Disease: conflicts with parents, friends, work. We confirm the utility of psychological treatment in the management of these patients.
