Abstract

The use of placebo is not old-fashioned, ineffective or unethical. It requires an ongoing, trusting relationship between the physician and the patient. Deception of the patient and self-deception must be avoided. Under these conditions, there are specific situations in which placebo is the treatment of choice.
