The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child. XXXIV, 1979: The Psychological Effects of Mutilating Surgery in Children and Adolescents. Elspeth M. Earle. Pp. 527-546.

H. Robert Blank

Earle describes her experience with patients undergoing limb amputations at a bone cancer center. These children are confronted with interrelated problems in at least four areas: (1) the effects of being in the hospital and being subjected to examinations; (2) the anticipation and the actuality of amputation; (3) the effects of long-term chemotherapy; and (4) the anticipation and, in some cases, the reality of death. There is a considerable variety of reactions, defenses, and coping mechanisms. Emphasis is placed on the need for helping hospital staff with their problems as well as help for the child and parents.
