AbstractPsychological 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.
