This study present a psychoanalytical view of panic based on three conceptual operators: phobic personality, helplessness and masochism. Proposed by Brazilian authors who have been giving important contributions to the understanding of this kind of psychological suffering, the cited conceptual operators were selected because were aligned to the subjective dimension perspective. Also we will use clinical material from one patient with panic disorder diagnostic as illustrative resource. We will consider the panic among the contemporary psychopathologies. Thus, we will discuss central psychopathology aspects of this kind of psychological suffering accentuating its multifaceted nature.
