Abstract : We study the behaviour of energy levels in two dimensions for exotic atoms, i.e., when a long-range attractive potential is supplemented by a short-range interaction, and compare the results with these of the one- and three-dimensional cases. The energy shifts are well reproduces by a Trueman--Deser-like formula delta(E)= A/Log(a/R), where a is the scattering length in the short-range is potential and A the square of the wave function at the origin in the external short-range potential. The interpretation of R is more delicate, as is every formulation of a pseudo-potential in two dimensions.
