Objective. To identify any disorder emerging from the psychological and personality assessment in patients candidates for Uterus Transplantation from deceased donor. Methods. Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 ques-tionnaire was administered to patients affected from Absolute Uterine Factor Infertility candidates for Uterine Transplantation from deceased donor (protocol n. 1438/CNT2018 by National Transplant Center) during the first visit at Gynaecology and Obstetrics Unit of the Cannizzaro Hospital of Catania. The averages of T points for the clinical scales and subscales of the test were calculated. Clinical scale and subscales are significant for T points average equal to or greater than 65. The study was approved by Ethical Committee Catania 1 of the Policlinico-Vittorio Emanuele Hospital of Catania (protocol n. 0026684 on 03/07/2017). Results. 19 patients aged from 18 to 40 returned a valid ques-tionnaire. The median age is 28 years (range 21-38). Eighteen women have MRKH Syndrome, one hysterectomized. Significant elevation has been detected on the clinical scales for the triad: hypochondria, depression, hysteria; and subscales: sub-jective depression, physical dysfunctions, lassitude-malaise, somatic complaints. Conclusions. The patients candidates for uterine transplantation have alterations in the personality profiles that concern depression, hypochondria and hysteria.
