Incestuous fetish child: A deadly route

We question the situation of Addis, a child of 10 years, placed on judicial decision, from his early childhood in foster family then institutionalized, through the maternal relationship. Addis is a boy who has behavior disorders and for which the link or the nature of the relationship with the mother questioned as can be bound. Indeed, it has the role of a child fetish. This is question maternal functioning through the trail of a structure or expression of perverse traits building on the evolution of the clinical situation. The passage to the maternal act of a meaningful tattoo illuminates what is psychically played out for this mother and in this relationship which can only be alienating and mortifying for Addis.

Keywords: fetish child, drive for mastery, incestuous, institutional placement, maternal relationship, tatto.
