PMID:  6358274     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This case report describes the successful behavioral treatment of compulsive lip-biting and face scarring in a 12 yr-old boy. The condition had been long standing, self-mutilating and intractable. A regime of tracking (self-recording), aversive response substitution, and relaxation effected immediate and long lasting tissue repair and cure.
