Abstract

  This research attempts to describe and quantify the different psychopathological semiology’s found among the war blessings within the Cameroonian defense forces. This makes it possible to appreciate the similarities and differences between this population and international statistics. From the interview, the evaluation questionnaires and the impairment tests, we made the grouped and quantified diagnoses to the various syndromes and problems encountered in the blessed soldiers of the war against the Cameroonian defense forces. These figures could serve as a basis for a subsequent epidemiological study on a larger population.

Keywords: War Trauma; Mental Disorders; Epidemiology; Cameroonian Army; Descriptive Study
