RAMOS GUEVARA, Juan David  e  VASQUEZ, Rafael. Critical Approach to Somatomorphic Disorders in Children. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2012, vol.41, n.4, pp.900-909. ISSN 0034-7450.

Somatomorphic disorders have common somatic manifestations without medical explanation, that can affect daily life. There are evaluation difficulties regarding symptom report or observation in children due to their age, parental influence and associated factors. The aim of this work is to acknowledge diagnosis difficulties and clinic tools to approach somatomorphic disorders in children. A systematic search in the information published for the last ten years was carried out. Historical evolution of the concept of somatization has generated difficulties to approach this issue. Some signs could indicate a somatomorphic disorder; however, there are very little evaluating tools for children. Currently, said tools are only based on lists of symptoms without fully answering to all questions. Somatomorphic disorders or somatic symptoms in children are still a gap to be closed.

Palavras-chave : Somatoform disorders; pediatrics; diagnosis.
