Revista De Psicoanálisis. XVI, 1959: The Regressive Intrauterine Fantasy and Its Relation to Hypochondria and to Psychopathy. Alberto Emilio Fontana. Pp. 226-241.

Two clinical cases and the literature are used to study the different unconscious fantasies underlying hypochondriacal phenomena. Hypochondria is seen as a bodily-expressed psychosis based on an intense oral cannibalistic desire and the frustration and anger associated with it. As a narcissistic regression and through the language of the body the patient attempts a restitution to achieve control of his environment. Such patients also express the fantasy of a permanent union with no separation from the internalized love-object. This is also true in temporary hypochondriacal manifestations; even brief somatization conveys the same fantasies and fears of anything new that is experienced as a rebirth.
