Abstract

This article presents a case study of a patient with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). BDD is an increasingly recognized somatoform disorder that is clinically distinct from obsessivecompulsive disorder, eating disorders, and depression. Patients with body dysmorphic disorder are preoccupied with imaginary defects in the appearance of one or more body parts, causing clinically significant stress, disability. These patients have a poor quality of life, are socially isolated, depressed, and at high risk of suicide. Here it is defined as preoccupation with imaginary or superficial minor imperfections. "pimples" on face or "big" nose. If there is a slight physical anomaly, the concern is clearly overdone. Primary occupation must cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. Supportive care, mental education, role-plays, reminders, predischarge counseling, discharge counseling, and social group work were performed. At the end of treatment, the patient knowledge of and coping with the disease has improved.

Keywords: Body dysmorphic disorder, Mental illness, FAMILY.
