We held the liaison case conferences for two adolescent cases with psychosomatic disease in the pediatric ward to understand the patient's emotional problems and family situations, and to discuss how approach their psychological problems. We considered that the liaison conference played a useful role in both the clinical diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, the liaison conference was useful for reducing the staff’s anxieties and for contributing to have a proper understanding for the disease. We suggest that a liaison conference should be implemented in pediatric units, for pediatric patients with emotional and behavioral problems.
