Περίληψη


Seventy-nine women with chronίc pelvic pain are described. Αll the patίents were selected from a population of women who had been assessed by gynecologists and surgeons with no evidence of organic pathology. 48 (60.7%) showed a depressive syndrome, 46 (58.2%) referred psycho-sexual problems, 43 (54.4%) mentioned marital problems. These findίngs and the absence of organic pathology emphasise the need of psychiatric investigation in cases of chronίc pelvic pain of obscure aetiology.
