Abstract

The case of a 65-year-old woman with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is presented to demonstrate the nature of depression in this disease entity. The patient responded to the therapeutic environment on a psychiatric ward that was comforting to patients with chronic medical illnesses. The use of brief psychotherapy and psychopharmacology in patients with emphysema is also reviewed.
