Based on excerpts from the psychoanalytic psychotherapy of an adult patient convicted of child abuse, the author proposes the hypothesis that the thermal metaphors which repeatedly appear in the patient's discourse are the marks of early psychobodily trauma. These are traces of the patient's burning incestuous relationship with his mother, which led to the early fusion of his physical and psychic skins. © 2011 Elsevier Masson SAS.
