Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Pilowsky (psychiatry, U. of Adelaide) offers a clinical perspective on the behavior not only of people called hypochondriacs and malingerers, who display bodily symptoms for which no adequate organic cause can be found, but also those who deny the presence of disease that is obvious to others. He reviews the historical and theoretical background, introduces early recognition and treatment measures, and describes the skills needed by health professionals to recognize the behavior and offer appropriate care or referral.
