The present study aims to present the relations established between certain types of cranium and facial dismorphologies and the psychologic reactions of the
suffering patients. The objective of the research is to underline the fact that according to the patient’s attitude and perception, he/she can be more or less receptive to the doctor’s suggestions, recomandations and indicated treatment. The correlations between these two elements have been studied by introducing and analysing certain criteria, such as, on the one hand, the causes of the dismorphology apparition, the length and the identity of the disease, the probability of treatment application and, on the other hand, the ways in which patients perceive their own illness and its effects. The working method for this study was that of the questionnaire. The one used here was revised by Moss- Moris and it is based on three variables. The psychologic variable comprises the following subunities – patient perception of the consequences of their own disease, emotional representation, disease coherence and perceived causes of the disease. The next variable is socialdemographic and it reffers to the patient’s biologic gender, age, marital status and education level. The third variable reffers to the patient’s medical state (pathologic category) and to his/her receptivity to the treatment and behaviour recomended by the doctor (medical compliance).
