Oral cenesthopathy examined by Rorschach test



Oral cenesthopathy examined by Rorschach test



Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences 60(2): 154-159



Experience of abnormal pains and unusual sensations in the mouth without a somatic base, for example abnormal mucus secretion, pulling sensation on the jaw or teeth, or a vibrating sensation, is termed 'oral cenesthopathy'. Psychological factors were investigated in terms of cognitive functions and personality tendencies, using Rorschach test in 28 patients with this condition (three men and 25 women). In oral cenesthopathy patients (i) the processing of new information is inefficient; (ii) the necessary resources for social adaptation are lacking, emotional control is inadequate, and uncomfortable emotions are expressed less; and (iii) with regard to interpersonal interaction, less interest is shown in others, trust in others is diminished, and they tend to have a higher Coping Deficit Index.
