Abstract

Suicide is one of the important causes leading to death in patients with schizophrenia.
About 10% of these patients had died due to suicide. Psychodynamic formulations are not able
to explaining the origins of schizophrenia, but they could help to better understanding of
phenomenology of this disorder. Reunion as one of psychodynamic factor leading to suicidal
attempt was mentioned in neurotic patients, but was not mentioned sufficiently in psychotic
patients. In this article a patient with schizophrenia was reported. He had attempted suicide
and had believed that will be joined with his lost child by this way.
Analysis of patient’s attempt with emphasis on his pathological fantasy of reunion was
discussed.
