Hypochondriasis describes an attitude—a more focused preoccupation with the conviction or the fear of having a particular disease even when confronted with evidence or reassurance of its absence or mild nature. Hypochondriacal patients may be exquisitely sensitive to common normal or trivially deviant body sensations; they may enhance or distort these sensations and misinterpret them as evidence of dreaded diseases. A distinction may be drawn between individuals who have no physical disease at all and those who have a mild or manageable disease that becomes unnecessarily disabling because of the patient's preoccupation with it (eg, cardiac neurosis). Often very anxious by nature or by virtue of clinical syndromes (generalized anxiety disorder), these patients are usually resistant to reassurance and may in fact become angry or dismissive when offered reassurance.
