MIN, Li Shih; MIN, Li Li  and  SOUZA, Lília Freire Rodrigues de. Use of MMPI on the assessment of the chronic pain syndrome patients. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1991, vol.49, n.4, pp. 426-429. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1991000400009.

The MMPI was performed in 25 patients with chronic pain syndrome to evaluate the personality trait. The results showed an elevation in scales 1, 2, 3 in 64% of the patients. The inventory was effective on the assessment of patients. It offered standardization and objective visualization of patients psychical involvement. Also, it can serve as a prognostic factor for psychotherapy and surgery.
