Chief Complaints

A girl aged 8.5 years was brought by her mother with complaints of soft swelling like structures in the gums around the right lower first premolar and in between the left lower first premolar and left lower second premolar since for the last two months

Personal History

She was shy in nature. When I asked her a question she always smiled .She was the youngest of the 4 siblings. When the cysts were small, she never told her mother because it was no problem for her. As the size of the cysts increased, she had the problem of feeling uneasy and irritated whenever food particles touched the cysts

Rubrics taken for this case

MIND – TIMIDITY

MIND – FRIVOLOUS

MIND – SMILING

MIND – SHRIEKING –

MIND – LIGHT – desire for

Reason  for  selection  of  rubrics –

  • Frivolous  –  Her  mother said that  the girl  did  not  take anything  seriously, that she was careless.
  • Timidity –   She   was  shy  in
  • Shrieking –   When   the   cysts  were  small,   she  was  unaware  of them, so never  told  her  mother .  As  the  size  of  cysts  increased,  she developed  uneasiness  and   When she  became  aware  of  her  complaints she  was  shrieking  for  treatment  of  her  complaints .

Note:  I found  the  marked  mental  generals,  so  there  was  no  need  to  repertorize the  physical  problems.
