Abstract

The psychological profile of non-cardiac chest pain patients is strongly influenced by the prevalent psychiatric disorders of this group. Anxiety, affective and somatization features dominate and have both mechanistic and therapeutic implications. These psychiatric disorders are important in the unsatisfactory psychosocial and functional outcome recognized in this patient population.
