SILVA, Fernanda Fernandes da  and  FULGENCIO, Leopoldo. The social phenomenon in the environment of zika's epidemic as a potential complicator to the baby's psychic constitution. Estilos clin. [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.2, pp. 276-290. ISSN 1415-7128.

This paper aims to analyze the relationship between the Zika epidemic that occured in Brazil from 2015 to 2017 and the phobic social scenario established between pregnant women and their relatives who will receive a baby in the family. The objective is to make a theoretical exploration, based on a psychoanalytical perspective, which considers the unconscious processes in the constitution of the psychological subject, driven by sexuality in the Oedipal scenario and therefore result, in this scenario of Zika virus, the reorganization of the paternal and maternal identities impregnated by the fear to bring to the world a baby with special needs or even with complications that are considered incompatible with life.

Keywords : Zika; phobic object; psychic constitution; microcephaly.
