Thirty American analysts who have published articles that include clinical material were interviewed about their methods for ensuring patient confidentiality. Eight of these analysts had patients who had read about themselves or heard their cases presented, though their analyst had not requested permission to use this material. Eighteen patients had been asked and gave their consent to have their material used. Twelve of these patients were shown the material written about them. The analysts' thoughts and reactions to their experiences of obtaining consent and having their patients read material about themselves, and of disguising material without asking consent and then having it inadvertently discovered and read by their patients, are discussed. Their views of the effect on their patients of reading written material about themselves are elaborated with case illustrations.
