We show the case of a worker affected with schizophrenia who was declared by the psychiatrist fit to work. The "Medico Competente" on the contrary, on the basis of his studies and in particular on his deep knowledge of the features of the office and the place where that worker works, decides that he is not fit to do that job. This judgement is confirmed by the "ASL-Collegio Medico". The case we described emphasizes in a very strong way what is written in the item 17, paragraph 1, letter a of the D.Lgs 626/94, which extends the judgement of the fitness to work given by the "Medico Competente" even to the psychic sphere of the worker.
