Abstract

in English, Russian

Psychogenic pain is one of the urgent problems of medicine. To date, pathogenetic mechanisms of development of pain syndrome are unclear, there is no uniform classification. Pain, developing in patients with a mental disorder without an organic damage to the nervous system, and pain, which is a complication of an already existing pain syndrome of neuropathic or nociceptive nature, should be considered separately. Treatment of psychogenic pain syndromes should be integrated with the mandatory use of methods aimed at modifying the patient's lifestyle and attitude towards the illness.
