Bhushan Kumar, Gurumohan Singh, ON Srivastava, AN Jaiswal
Psychological needs of 20 adult male patients with neurodermatitis circumscripta(lichen simplex chronicus) and 50 matched controls were studied using ten TAT cards.Need affiliation(100%) need achievement (95%),need superiority (55%) and need dominance(40%) were the predominant needs.In contrast to the findings in other studies where aggressive needs were high in patients with atopic dermatitis our study showed that it was a prominent need in only one patient with neurodermatitis circumscripta.
