Abstract Organ transplantation as a surgical operation has become a banal procedure at the technical level, however; at the psychological level organ transplantation currently raises two fundamental questions. The first is on the psychological living and the other is on the quality of the body image because no one can deny the physical influence generated by the transplant within the patient as soon as it is undertaken. This study focuses on kidney transplant and aim at exploring, using a psychosomatic approach, the quality of the Mental Functioning and the nature of the Body Image within young patients who accepted the transplant and the patients who rejected it. In order to answer our questions, the research methodology adopted was essentially the clinical approach leaning on the case study through the clinical interview accompanied by Rorschach Test. Our population is made up of ten (10) adults divided into two sub-groups, five (05) patients who accepted the Kidney Transplant and five (05) who underwent the rejection. Key words: Kidney Transplant - Mental Functioning – Body Image – Rorschach test
greffe rénale, fonctionnement mentale, l’image du corps, test du Rorschach.
