Caption

Self-inflicted injury. Close-up of self-inflicted lacerations on the back of a 17 year old girl. Self-injury or self-mutilation is most common in young adults (especially women) with personality disorders. Reasons for the behaviour include aggressive impulses, relief of tension and sado-masochistic tendencies. In patients with learning difficulties it may also be a means of gaining attention.
