Is it that he just hasn't noticed? Or it's something he wouldn't want to believe of himself, as a good Cardassian?

And I'm sure Brenok's would be very similar, if he knew what Karama was thinking. But Brenok was searching for medics' names in his memory, so he missed all signs of Karama's fear.

So Brenok did his best to help.
