Intolérance environnementale idiopathique attribuée aux champs électromagnétiques et santé mentale : étude préliminaire du phénomène de l'électrosensibilité

Abstract : Idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF) defines the group of symptoms described by some people who attribute their functional disorders' causes to exposure to electromagnetic fields. After a description of IEI-EMF, this work focuses on the nature of electromagnetic waves, and outlines the main principles supporting the presomption of their harmlessness. Then a review of psychiatric literature and the emphasis placed on the importance of nocebo effect allows to define the current state of knowledge regarding this disorder. Then the presentation of some research in social sciences and humanities introduces the development of a psychopathology of electrosensitivity with the psychoanalytical concept of monosymptom. Finally, a presentation of seven clinical cases from consultations at the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Center in Brest illustrates previously discussed topics.
