An anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent, persistent obsessions or compulsions. Obsessions are the intrusive ideas, thoughts, or images that are experienced as senseless or repugnant. Compulsions are repetitive and seemingly purposeful behavior which the individual generally recognizes as senseless and from which the individual does not derive pleasure although it may provide a release from tension.
The behavior of performing an act persistently and repetitively without it leading to reward or pleasure. The act is usually a small, circumscribed behavior, almost ritualistic, yet not pathologically disturbing. Examples of compulsive behavior include twirling of hair, checking something constantly, not wanting pennies in change, straightening tilted pictures, etc.
Disorder characterized by an emotionally constricted manner that is unduly conventional, serious, formal, and stingy, by preoccupation with trivial details, rules, order, organization, schedules, and lists, by stubborn insistence on having things one's own way without regard for the effects on others, by poor interpersonal relationships, and by indecisiveness due to fear of making mistakes.
A method for extinguishing anxiety by a saturation exposure to the feared stimulus situation or its substitute.
A neuropsychological disorder related to alterations in DOPAMINE metabolism and neurotransmission involving frontal-subcortical neuronal circuits. Both multiple motor and one or more vocal tics need to be present with TICS occurring many times a day, nearly daily, over a period of more than one year. The onset is before age 18 and the disturbance is not due to direct physiological effects of a substance or a another medical condition. The disturbance causes marked distress or significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. (From DSM-IV, 1994; Neurol Clin 1997 May;15(2):357-79)
A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor that is used in the treatment of DEPRESSION and a variety of ANXIETY DISORDERS.
Persistent, unwanted idea or impulse which is considered normal when it does not markedly interfere with mental processes or emotional adjustment.
Compounds that specifically inhibit the reuptake of serotonin in the brain.
Standardized procedures utilizing rating scales or interview schedules carried out by health personnel for evaluating the degree of mental illness.
A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.
Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.
Psychiatric illness or diseases manifested by breakdowns in the adaptational process expressed primarily as abnormalities of thought, feeling, and behavior producing either distress or impairment of function.
An affective disorder manifested by either a dysphoric mood or loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities. The mood disturbance is prominent and relatively persistent.
The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.
Levels within a diagnostic group which are established by various measurement criteria applied to the seriousness of a patient's disorder.
A relational pattern in which a person attempts to derive a sense of purpose through relationships with others.
A tricyclic antidepressant similar to IMIPRAMINE that selectively inhibits the uptake of serotonin in the brain. It is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and demethylated in the liver to form its primary active metabolite, desmethylclomipramine.
Disorders characterized by recurrent TICS that may interfere with speech and other activities. Tics are sudden, rapid, nonrhythmic, stereotyped motor movements or vocalizations which may be exacerbated by stress and are generally attenuated during absorbing activities. Tic disorders are distinguished from conditions which feature other types of abnormal movements that may accompany another another condition. (From DSM-IV, 1994)
Disorders having the presence of physical symptoms that suggest a general medical condition but that are not fully explained by a another medical condition, by the direct effects of a substance, or by another mental disorder. The symptoms must cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other areas of functioning. In contrast to FACTITIOUS DISORDERS and MALINGERING, the physical symptoms are not under voluntary control. (APA, DSM-V)
Categorical classification of MENTAL DISORDERS based on criteria sets with defining features. It is produced by the American Psychiatric Association. (DSM-IV, page xxii)
Check list, usually to be filled out by a person about himself, consisting of many statements about personal characteristics which the subject checks.
Disorders whose essential features are the failure to resist an impulse, drive, or temptation to perform an act that is harmful to the individual or to others. Individuals experience an increased sense of tension prior to the act and pleasure, gratification or release of tension at the time of committing the act.
Persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions, regardless of the value of these possessions. Epidemiological studies suggest that hoarding occurs in 2-5% of the population and can lead to substantial distress and disability, as well as serious public health consequences.
Assessment of psychological variables by the application of mathematical procedures.

A cost-effective approach to the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in a Veterans Affairs Medical Center. (1/695)

In light of the tremendous expansion in the number of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors available to the clinician, the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee of the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center considered the advantages and disadvantages of fluoxethine, paroxetine, and sertraline, to determine which agent or agents would be carried on the formulary. The committed recommended sertraline as the preferred agent for the treatment of depression, panic disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess the economic outcome of that decision. The study population consisted of patients at the medical center who were receiving selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors during January through March of 1994 and those were receiving these agents between September 1995 and January 1996. The expanded collection period in 1995-96 was due to a relatively new medical center policy to offer 90-day fills on medication to reduce costs. The extended collection period assured a 100% sample of patients receiving these agents. The 1994 fluoxetine to sertraline dosage equivalency ratio was 20 mg:55.6 mg, based on average daily doses of fluoxetine and sertraline of 32.7 and 90.9 mg, respectively. The cost to the medical center for an average daily dose of fluoxetine was $1.86; sertraline cost $1.22 per day. The 1996 fluoxetine to sertraline dosage equivalency ratio (20 mg:51.3 mg) had not changed significantly since 1994, indicating that the dose of 20 mg of fluoxetine remained very close to a 50-mg dose of sertraline. The average daily doses of fluoxetine and sertraline (34.9 mg and 89.7 mg, respectively) were not significantly different than the 1994 doses. Only 33 patients had been prescribed paroxetine (average daily dose, 32.4 mg). On the basis of these values, the average daily cost of fluoxetine to the medical center was $2.01, compared with $1.18 for sertraline and $1.24 for paroxetine. This $0.83 per patient per day drug acquisition cost difference between fluoxetine and sertraline results in a drug cost reduction of $302,674 per year.  (+info)

Clarifying an ambiguous functional analysis with matched and mismatched extinction procedures. (2/695)

Results of functional analysis were ambiguous in suggesting that self-injurious behavior (SIB) was maintained by escape, sensory reinforcement, or both. To help clarify these results, we compared escape extinction, sensory extinction, and the combined treatments. Sensory extinction proved to be a necessary and sufficient treatment, whereas escape extinction failed to decrease SIB. These analyses helped to clarify the function of SIB and to identify an effective and efficient treatment.  (+info)

OCD-Like behaviors caused by a neuropotentiating transgene targeted to cortical and limbic D1+ neurons. (3/695)

To study the behavioral role of neurons containing the D1 dopamine receptor (D1+), we have used a genetic neurostimulatory approach. We generated transgenic mice that express an intracellular form of cholera toxin (CT), a neuropotentiating enzyme that chronically activates stimulatory G-protein (Gs) signal transduction and cAMP synthesis, under the control of the D1 promoter. Because the D1 promoter, like other CNS-expressed promoters, confers transgene expression that is regionally restricted to different D1+ CNS subsets in different transgenic lines, we observed distinct but related psychomotor disorders in different D1CT-expressing founders. In a D1CT line in which transgene expression was restricted to the following D1+ CNS regions-the piriform cortex layer II, layers II-III of somatosensory cortical areas, and the intercalated nucleus of the amygdala-D1CT mice showed normal CNS and D1+ neural architecture but increased cAMP content in whole extracts of the piriform and somatosensory cortex. These mice also exhibited a constellation of compulsive behavioral abnormalities that strongly resembled human cortical-limbic-induced compulsive disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). These compulsive behaviors included episodes of perseverance or repetition of any and all normal behaviors, repetitive nonaggressive biting of siblings during grooming, and repetitive leaping. These results suggest that chronic potentiation of cortical and limbic D1+ neurons thought to induce glutamatergic output to the striatum causes behaviors reminiscent of those in human cortical-limbic-induced compulsive disorders.  (+info)

Serotonin and drug-induced therapeutic responses in major depression, obsessive-compulsive and panic disorders. (4/695)

The therapeutic effectiveness of antidepressant drugs in major depression was discovered by pure serendipity. It took over 20 years before the neurobiological modifications that could mediate the antidepressive response were put into evidence. Indeed, whereas the immediate biochemical effects of these drugs had been well documented, their antidepressant action generally does not become apparent before 2 to 3 weeks of treatment. The different classes of antidepressant treatments were subsequently shown to enhance serotonin neurotransmission albeit via different pre- and postsynaptic mechanisms. Clinical trials based on this hypothesis led to the development of treatment strategies producing greater efficacy and more rapid onset of antidepressant action; that, is lithium addition and pindolol combination, respectively. It is expected that the better understanding recently obtained of the mechanism of action of certain antidepressant drugs in obsessive-compulsive and panic disorders will also lead to more effective treatment strategies for those disorders.  (+info)

A complete genome screen in sib pairs affected by Gilles de la Tourette syndrome. The Tourette Syndrome Association International Consortium for Genetics. (5/695)

Gilles de la Tourette syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by waxing and waning multiple motor and phonic tics with a complex mode of inheritance. Previous attempts, which used large multigenerational families to localize susceptibility loci, have been unsuccessful. In this report, the results of the first systematic genome scan, using 76 affected-sib-pair families with a total of 110 sib pairs, are summarized. While no results reached acceptable statistical significance, the multipoint maximum-likelihood scores (MLS) for two regions (4q and 8p) were suggestive (MLS > 2.0). Four additional genomic regions also gave multipoint MLS scores between 1.0 and 2.0.  (+info)

Localized orbitofrontal and subcortical metabolic changes and predictors of response to paroxetine treatment in obsessive-compulsive disorder. (6/695)

Previous positron emission tomography (PET) studies of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have found elevated glucose metabolic rates in the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) and caudate nuclei that normalize with response to treatment. Furthermore, OCD symptom provocation differentially activates specific subregions of the OFC, which have distinct patterns of connectivity and serve different functions. Therefore, we sought to determine the role of specific subregions of the OFC and associated subcortical structures in mediating OCD symptoms, by determining how glucose metabolism in these structures changed with paroxetine treatment of OCD patients. We also sought to determine whether pretreatment OFC metabolism would predict response to paroxetine, as it has for other OCD treatments. Twenty subjects with OCD received [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET scans before and after 8 to 12 weeks of treatment with paroxetine, 40 mg/day. In patients who responded to paroxetine, glucose metabolism decreased significantly in right anterolateral OFC and right caudate nucleus. Lower pretreatment metabolism in both left and right OFC predicted greater improvement in OCD severity with treatment. These results add to evidence indicating that orbitofrontal-subcortical circuit function mediates the symptomatic expression of OCD. Specific subregions of the OFC may be differentially involved in the pathophysiology of OCD and/or its response to pharmacotherapy.  (+info)

Psychotic episodes during zonisamide treatment. (7/695)

Several articles have appeared over the last years devoted to mental side effects during zonisamide (ZNS) treatment. In this study, we were particularly interested in psychotic episodes. Seventy-four epileptic patients with a history of ZNS treatment were surveyed retrospectively over the period spanning 1 March 1984 to 30 June 1994. They were divided into two groups according to the presence or absence of psychotic episodes during ZNS treatment. We analysed various factors pertaining to psychotic episodes during ZNS treatment. Of the 74 patients 14 had psychotic episodes. We found that the incidence of psychotic episodes during ZNS treatment was several times higher than the previously reported prevalence of epileptic psychosis, and that the risk of psychotic episodes was higher in young patients. In 13 patients, psychotic episodes occurred within a few years of commencement of ZNS. In children, obsessive-compulsive symptoms appeared to be related to psychotic episodes. It is important to terminate ZNS as soon as possible if psychotic episodes develop and never restart, even if seizures become worse. It cannot definitely be proved that ZNS causes psychotic episodes, as information on mental side effects during ZNS monotherapy is scant, but it does appear likely that ZNS contributes to psychotic episodes during polytherapy.  (+info)

Obsessive-compulsive disorder and delusions revisited. (8/695)

BACKGROUND: The concept of fixed, unshakeable (delusional) beliefs within the context of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one that has received varying amounts of attention in the literature, and has not yet received universal acknowledgement. There are good grounds for including these cases within the diagnostic concepts of OCD, with significant implications for clinical management. AIMS: To present cases with unusual OCD, in order to re-evaluate the issue of delusions and OCD. METHOD: The cases of five subjects with delusions in the course of obsessive-compulsive disorder are presented to illustrate 'delusional' OCD. The management and outcome of these cases are discussed. RESULTS: Fixity and bizarreness of beliefs in OCD occur on a continuum from 'none' to 'delusional intensity' and may fluctuate within subjects. CONCLUSIONS: The idea that these cases may represent a form of OCD has implications for management, as, if this is correct, they should be able to respond to appropriate behavioural and/or pharmacological strategies used in OCD.  (+info)

Background: The Brief Obsessive Compulsive Scale (BOCS), derived from the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) and the childrens version (CY-BOCS), is a short self-report tool used to aid in the assessment of obsessive-compulsive symptoms and diagnosis of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is widely used throughout child, adolescent and adult psychiatry settings in Sweden but has not been validated up to date. Aim: The aim of the current study was to examine the psychometric properties of the BOCS amongst a psychiatric outpatient population. Method: The BOCS consists of a 15-item Symptom Checklist including three items (hoarding, dysmorphophobia and self-harm) related to the DSM-5 category Obsessive-compulsive related disorders, accompanied by a single six-item Severity Scale for obsessions and compulsions combined. It encompasses the revisions made in the Y-BOCS-II severity scale by including obsessive-compulsive free intervals, extent of avoidance and excluding the resistance ...

At least half of OCD cases arise in childhood and their underlying neuropathology may differ at least in part from that of adult-onset OCD. Yet, only a few studies have examined brain white matter (WM) integrity in childhood-onset OCD using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and none have examined potential associations with age at onset.Results: In this study, 17 youth with OCD and 19 healthy ...
OBJECTIVES To identify neurodevelopmental differences in regional brain volume between medication-free paediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patients and controls at 2-year follow-up after cognitive behavioural therapy. METHODS We assessed 17 medication-free paediatric OCD patients (mean age 13.8 years; SD = 2.8; range 8.2-19.0) and 20 controls, matched on age and gender, with T1-weighted MR scans in a repeated measures design at three time points with intervals of 6 months and 2 years. Voxel based morphometry (VBM) was used to test whole brain voxel-wise for the effects of diagnosis and time on regional grey matter (GM) and white matter volumes. RESULTS GM volume of the orbitofrontal cortex showed a group × time interaction effect, driven by an increase of GM volume over the whole time period in OCD patients and a decrease in controls. When splitting the groups in two age groups (8-12 and 13-19 years) this interaction effect was only seen in the youngest age group. CONCLUSIONS
This paper presents the rationale, design, and methods of the Pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Treatment Study II (POTS II), which investigates two different cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) augmentation approaches in children and adolescents who have experienced a partial response to pharmacotherapy with a serotonin reuptake inhibitor for OCD. The two CBT approaches test a single doctor versus dual doctor model of service delivery. A specific goal was to develop and test an easily disseminated protocol whereby child psychiatrists would provide instructions in core CBT procedures recommended for pediatric OCD (e.g., hierarchy development, in vivo exposure homework) during routine medical management of OCD (I-CBT). The conventional dual doctor CBT protocol consists of 14 visits over 12 weeks involving: (1) psychoeducation, (2), cognitive training, (3) mapping OCD, and (4) exposure with response prevention (EX/RP). I-CBT is a 7-session version of CBT that does not include imaginal exposure or
Brain glucose metabolism was investigated with PET and [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose, before and after a bifrontal stereotactic leukotomy in a 37 year old woman with refractory obsessive-compulsive disorder. A bilateral decrease in glucose metabolism was found in the orbital frontal cortex after psychosurgery. Glucose metabolism was decreased to a lesser degree in Brodmanns area 25, in the thalamus, and in the caudate nucleus. Clinical improvement in obsessive-compulsive disorder after stereotactic tractotomy seems to be associated with metabolic changes in the brain, in particular, in the orbital part of the frontal lobe.. ...

Patients with schizophrenia often experience comorbid obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Within these patients, a significant subgroup developed secondary obsessive-compulsive symptoms during treatment with clozapine. In this paper, we report on four cases in which adjunctive therapy with aripiprazole was tested to alleviate obsessive-compulsive symptoms in schizophrenia. All four patients had a significant improvement in obsessive-compulsive symptoms. The combination of clozapine and aripiprazole was well tolerated. This case series demonstrates the clinical efficacy of aripiprazole adjunctive therapy with clozapine in schizophrenic patients with comorbid obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Larger-sampled and controlled studies are required in order to test and confirm these observations.
While it is human nature to occasionally ruminate or overanalyze important decisions, these thought patterns normally dissipate quickly freeing us of those fleeting moments of inner turmoil. However, for those suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), letting go of repetitive thoughts is not so effortless. Relentless ideas, impulses, or images inundate the brain leaving the individual mentally imprisoned to an existence of recurrent, irrational thought patterns. These senseless obsessions often drive the individual to perform ritualistic behaviors or compulsions, in an effort to temporarily relieve their anxiety. Sufferers stagger through life with a sense of pure powerlessness against their disorder; fully aware that the behavior is abnormal, yet unable to stop.. Psychotropic medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and Anafranil and cognitive behavioral therapy are the conventional treatment options for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Sadly, the likelihood ...
Someone with obsessive-compulsive disorder has thoughts called obsessions. A thought that is an obsession will happen many times and is a thought that the person does not want to have. Different people will have different obsessive thoughts. Some people have obsessions about God, the Devil, or another religious figure hurting them or someone they love. Other people have obsessions about sex. They may think about things like kissing, having sex with, or touching people around them.[4] People with OCD may worry that they will act on these thoughts. Some people have obsessive-compulsive disorder without compulsions. This is called primarily obsessional OCD, or pure-O. It is thought that up to half of all people with obsessive-compulsive disorder have primarily obsessional OCD.[5] People with primarily obsessional OCD may have a third type of obsession; that is aggressive thoughts. People with aggressive thoughts may have obsessions about hurting or killing themselves or people around them. ...

Western atheists are the most frequent suffers of Severe Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder (SCOCD) which is a particularly grave and virulent form of COCD. A common symptom of Severe Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder (SCOCD) is the frequent repetition of the mantra none of Conservapedias content is changing peoples minds. Of course, this is quite ironic given that they are severely suffering from a host of COCD symptoms. And let us never forget, the bitten dog yelps the loudest! For example, SCOCD suffers often whine and bellyache about the content of the Conservapedia atheism and evolution articles despite the fact that they cannot find a single factual error in them.

No prior study to date has examined the comparisons of the structures that have been implicated in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in patients with refractory OCD, those who are treatment-responded and healthy controls concurrently. Therefore, we performed a volumetric MRI study in patients with refractory OCD, those with treatment responding OCD and healthy controls. Morphometric MRI was used to compare in thirty patients with OCD and ten healthy controls. Of the patient group, ten were first applying patients, ten were treatment-responded and the rest were refractory OCD patients. As a whole group, OCD patients had increased white matter volume than healthy controls. First applying patients had significantly smaller left and right orbito-frontal cortex (OFC) volumes compared with treatment-responded patients and healthy controls, with a significant difference between refractory patients and treatment-responded patients and with no significant difference was found between the volume of ...
We report here that 42% of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (a consecutive cohort of children and adolescents attending a specialist clinic) had circulating anti-basal antibodies. This is a highly significant finding, as these antibodies are uncommonly found in the control groups studied. In contrast, patients with the neurological disorder most robustly established as a post-streptococcal autoimmune disorder - Sydenhams chorea - almost always test positive for these antibodies using the same assays (Church et al, 2002). These findings demonstrate that a subgroup of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder have antibody findings similar to those seen in Sydenhams chorea, suggesting that autoimmunity many have a role in the genesis and/or maintenance of the former disorder. Only a few other studies have looked for anti-neuronal antibodies in obsessive-compulsive disorder. An indirect immunofluorescence method has been used in one small study of idiopathic disease, and did ...

The purpose of this study is to test the effect of a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise intervention for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) patients interested in reducing symptoms. The investigators expect that this project will contribute much needed knowledge about the role that aerobic exercise can play in managing the effects of OCD.

Objective: Hoarding may be an important symptom dimension in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Hoarding in OCD has been associated with poor insight, poorer response to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors than other OCD symptom dimensions, and a distinctive psychobiological profile. The clinical and genetic correlates of hoarding in OCD therefore deserve additional investigation. Method: Adult OCD patients (N = 315) underwent a comprehensive clinical assessment that included the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis I Disorders (Patient Edition) and for Diagnosis of Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders. DNA extracted from venous blood (10-30 mL) in a Caucasian subset of the interviewed OCD patients (N = 204) and Caucasian controls (N = 169), including patients (N = 94) and controls (N = 138) of Afrikaner descent, was genotyped to investigate polymorphisms in genes involved in monoamine function and previously hypothesized to be relevant to OCD. Data were collected from 1998 ...
This chapter focuses on the overlap of repetitive, restricted, and/or stereotyped patterns of behavior, interests, and/or activities that characterize both autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders (OCSDs) including obsessive-compulsive disorder, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, and trichotillomania. The chapter is organized as follows. First, it outlines the symptomatic commonalities in repetitive behaviors between ASD and other OCSDs. Next, it summarizes research findings related to the frequent comorbidity, similar course, and potentially overlapping genetic, neurobiological, and neuropsychological correlates across these disorders. Finally, it presents different approaches to subtyping the diverse symptoms that comprise the repetitive behavior domain. The identification of homogeneous subgroups will arm investigators with more power to uncover the unique pathogenesis that underlies each repetitive phenotype.
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is relatively common. According to criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition, it is characterized by recurrent and persistent thoughts; impulses, images (obsessions), or repetitive behaviour; or mental acts in response to an obsession (compulsions). 1 These obsessions and compulsions cause distress or substantially interfere with a persons normal, everyday life. Pregnancy and puerperium have a crucial role in the onset and course of the disorder, as they could affect the severity of pre-existing OCD or even trigger OCD onset. 2 Diagnosis and treatment of OCD during and following pregnancy are of utmost importance not only because it generally has a chronic course that might affect quality of life 3 but also because obsessions and compulsions in the perinatal period most often focus on the infant and could have persisting negative consequences for the development of the mother-infant relationship and bonding. ...
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a chronic (long-term) mental health condition that is usually associated with obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviour. An individual who sufferers from OCD feels they have no command over certain thoughts or ideas that are highly troubling to them, but which seem to force themselves into consciousness. These thoughts, or obsessions, create unbearable anxiety, which can only be relieved by executing a particular ritual to nullify them. This could be something like repeatedly opening and closing a door, washing hands, or counting. OCD is one of the most common mental health conditions. It is estimated that up to 3 in 100 adults and up to 5 in 100 children and teenagers have OCD. OCD usually starts in early adult life, with men tending to report earlier symptoms than women. However, OCD symptoms can begin at any time, including childhood. ...

Results: : Although no initial differences were found between the samples on ...
When someone has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder they experience obsessions or compulsions or both, which are distressing to them and affect their functioning.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is characterized by recurrent thoughts or behavior patterns that are severe enough to be time consuming, distressful and highly interfering. The most common obsessions are repeated thoughts about contamination, repeated doubts, a need to have things in a particular order, and aggressive or horrible impulses. Common compulsions are repeated washing, touching, checking, or repeating certain words or numbers. ...

Gradually they noticed other things too. She wouldnt say goodnight by kissing them but would shout it out from her bed.

0033]There is also a strong association of obsessive compulsive disorder with movement disorders. Obsessive compulsive disorder is associated with Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (Tourette syndrome), as well as with several other basal ganglia diseases including Sydenhams chorea and Huntingtons disease. There is strong evidence of a link between obsessive compulsive disorder and motor tics. While estimates of the occurrence of obsessive compulsive disorder in patients with Tourette syndrome vary from 5% to over 50%, all estimates are significantly higher than the prevalence of obsessive compulsive disorder in the general population. Shared clinical features between obsessive compulsive disorder and Tourette syndrome include waxing and waning of symptoms, early age at onset, ego-dystonic behavior (i.e., behavior contrary to an individuals conscious preferences), worsening with depression and anxiety, and their occurrence in the same families (Robertson and Yakely, supra). Genetic studies ...
The aims of the present study were to examine the frequency of personality disorders in 36 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and to investigate whether patients with a coexisting personality disorder could be characterized by certain personality traits assessed by means of the Karolinska Scales of Personality (KSP). In total, 27 (75%) of the OCD patients fulfilled the DSM-III-R criteria for a personality disorder, and 13 patients (36%) had an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Subjects with a comorbid personality disorder had significantly higher scores on most of the KSP scales, including all anxiety scales, as well as scales measuring indirect aggression, irritability, guilt and detachment, whereas subjects without personality disorders did not differ significantly from healthy controls with regard to personality traits.. ...
Rapid, illegible handwriting as a symptom of obsessive - compulsive disorder Journal- Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine - Date of acceptance 26/12/2013
Trichotillomania, or hair pulling disorder has previously been classified as an impulse control disorder. However, the most recent edition of the DSM5 now categorizes disorders such as hair pulling disorder and skin picking disorder as body-focussed repetitive behaviours (BFRBs), under the classification Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders.. This new classification suggests that hair pulling disorder falls under the same spectrum, but is different to obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The question then is whether OCD and trichotillomania co-occur and if so how common it is. One study that examined the comorbidity and family genetics of childhood trichotillomania, found that the subjects had substantial psychopathology and that a history of obsessive compulsive symptoms was common. One of the criteria for diagnosis of trichotillomania is that the hair pulling behaviour impacts negatively on functioning. The social withdrawal and feelings of isolation are often linked to feelings of ...

Common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) account for a large proportion of the heritability of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Co-ocurrence of OCD and schizophrenia is commoner than expected based on their respective prevalences, complicating the clinical management of patients. This study addresses two main objectives: to identify particular genes associated with OCD by SNP-based and gene-based tests; and to test the existence of a polygenic risk shared with schizophrenia. The primary analysis was an exon-focused genome-wide association study of 370 OCD cases and 443 controls from Spain. A polygenic risk model based on the Psychiatric Genetics Consortium schizophrenia data set (PGC-SCZ2) was tested in our OCD data. A polygenic risk model based on our OCD data was tested on previous data of schizophrenia from our group. The most significant association at the gene-based test was found at DNM3 (P=7.9 × 10(-5)), a gene involved in synaptic vesicle endocytosis. The polygenic risk model ...
The current study aimed to gather psychometric data on two newly designed Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder self-report measures. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder has historically been evaluated with clinician-administered assessments or short form self reports given in the treatment setting. Critics of earlier measures noted the lengthy format could be time consuming in therapy sessions, and that the available measures failed to provide information on the widest possible array of potential obsessions and compulsions. Further, many assessment tools do not evaluate for highly correlated behaviors like compulsive hoarding, which, although not recognized as a symptom of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, is generating much scholarly research and discussion regarding its influence and role in OCD manifestations. The Florida Obsessive Compulsive Inventory and the Schedule of Compulsions, Obsessions, and Pathological Impulses incorporate both shortened ...
BACKGROUND: Symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have been described in neuropsychiatric syndromes associated with streptococcal infections. It is proposed that antibodies raised against streptococcal proteins cross-react with neuronal proteins (antigens) in the brain, particularly in the basal ganglia, which is a brain region implicated in OCD pathogenesis. AIMS: To test the hypothesis that post-streptococcal autoimmunity, directed against neuronal antigens, may contribute to the pathogenesis of OCD in adults. METHOD: Ninety-six participants with OCD were tested for the presence of anti-streptolysin-O titres (ASOT) and the presence of anti-basal ganglia antibodies (ABGA) in a cross-sectional study. The ABGA were tested for with western blots using three recombinant antigens; aldolase C, enolase and pyruvate kinase. The findings were compared with those in a control group of individuals with depression (n = 33) and schizophrenia (n = 17). RESULTS: Positivity for ABGA was observed in 19/96 (19

Childbirth can trigger a variety of psychiatric disorders; however, no disorder is as profoundly affected by childbirth as bipolar disorder. Rates of psychiatric comorbidity especially anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and substance use disorders are quite high in individuals with bipolar disorder. The purpose of this scoping review is to ascertain the effect of childbirth on the relationship between the onset of bipolar disorder and comorbid psychiatric disorders.

Until a few years ago, a person who was known to collect cats would have been called the crazy cat person, houses that were filled with stuff were referred to as cluttered, filthy, or a pen sty. Today, those expressions have been replaced with the terms: hoarder or compulsive hoarding. What is hoarding? Hoarding is the inability to resist acquiring and disposing of possessions, (many of which have limited use or no value) to the point that it compromises movement within the home and renders living areas unusable (Tolin, Frost, & Steketee, 2007). In addition to excessive acquiring, many people with compulsive hoarding often have problems keeping these items organized. Hoarders tend to put things on a stack or pile closest to them, this in turn leads to disorganization; which adds another element into why hoarders are reluctant to throw things away. Compulsive hoarding is thought to be associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (Pertusa, A, ...
NEW YORK - Children and adolescents with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety or tic disorders are being treated in a new specialized outpatient clinic at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center - one of the only programs of its kind in the New York metro area.. In addition to a clinic in Manhattan, the Pediatric OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders (POCAT) program will offer a unique, day camp-style intensive summer treatment program situated in White Plains, N.Y., at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Westchester Division. The POCAT program is co-led by pediatric psychologist Dr. Shannon M. Bennett and psychiatrist Dr. Justin Mohatt.. Anxiety is a normal part of growing up, but when it interferes with school, friendships or family life, we recommend parents seek treatment for their child. If a family is going to extreme measures to accommodate their childs anxiety, or if their child has a problem with involuntary movements or vocalizations, we can offer help, says Dr. ...

The rate of Toxoplasma gondii seropositivity in patients diagnosed with pediatric obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is investigated. Toxoplasma avidity levels, antitoxoplasma IgG, and antitoxoplasma IgM are investigated using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method to examine the serums of 42 patients diagnosed with OCD (DSM-IV criteria) and 45 healthy individuals in the control group. Anti-toxoplasma IgG seropositivity was found in two patients (4.8%) among the pediatric OCD cases. Anti-toxoplasma IgM seropositivity was not detected in any patient. The toxoplasma avidity levels in patients determined to have anti-toxoplasma IgG seropositivity were 35 +/- 7.07. In the control group, however, antitoxoplasma IgG seropositivity was detected in four (8.9%) children. However, antitoxoplasma IgM seropositivity was not detected in any of the children, and the toxoplasma avidity level was 33 +/- 2.44. No statistically significant difference was found between the OCD group and the control ...
Background: Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a neuropsychiatric disorder in children characterized by motor and verbal tics. Although several genes have been suggested in the etiology of TS, the genetic mechanisms remain poorly understood. Methods: Using cytogenetics and FISH analysis, we identified an apparently balanced t(6,22)(q16.2;p13) in a male patient with TS and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). In order to map the breakpoints and to identify additional submicroscopic rearrangements, we performed whole genome mate-pair sequencing and CGH-array analysis on DNA from the proband. Results: Sequence and CGH array analysis revealed a 400 kb deletion located 1.3 Mb telomeric of the chromosome 6q breakpoint, which has not been reported in controls. The deletion affects three genes (GPR63, NDUFA4 and KLHL32) and overlaps a region previously found deleted in a girl with autistic features and speech delay. The probands mother, also a carrier of the translocation, was diagnosed with OCD and shares the ...

Association of serotonin receptor 2a haplotypes with obsessive-compulsive disorder and its treatment response in Iranian patients: a genetic and pharmacogenetic study Marzie Sina,1 Abolhassan Ahmadiani,1 Sareh Asadi,2 Jamal Shams3 1Neuroscience Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran; 2NeuroBiology Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran; 3Behavioral Sciences Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran Introduction: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a debilitating psychiatric disorder causing intrusive thoughts or repetitive behaviors. Serotonin reuptake inhibitors are used for OCD treatment, but 40%-60% of patients do not respond to them adequately. In this study, the associations of serotonin receptor 2a polymorphisms rs6311 and rs6313 with OCD, its familial form and fluvoxamine treatment response in Iranian population were investigated. Patients and methods: Association analyses were
Anxiety disorders can take the form of panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias or generalized anxiety disorder. · Panic disorder affects about 2.4 million adult Americans and is twice as common in women. It is characterized by feelings of terror that come on suddenly and repeatedly without warning. It is possible, however, to have one or more panic attacks without developing a full-blown panic disorder. · Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, causes anxious or disturbing thoughts such as an exaggerated fear of germs. Some people try to banish these thoughts by performing rituals such as constantly washing their hands. Unfortunately these rituals, or compulsions, provide only temporary relief. OCD affects about 3.3 adult Americans and is evenly divided between men and women. It may run in families. · Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a debilitating condition that can develop after a terrifying event such as child abuse, rape, serious accident or ...

Many people develop unhealthy habits such as nail biting or teeth grinding, especially during periods of high stress. Trichotillomania, however, is the compulsive urge to pull out (and possibly eat) your own hair, including eyelashes and eyebrows. Some people may consciously pull out their hair, while others may not even be aware that they are doing it. Trichotillomania can create serious injuries, such as repetitive motion injury in the arm or hand, or, if the hair is repeatedly swallowed, the formation of hairballs in the stomach, which can be life threatening if left untreated. A similar illness is excoriation disorder, which is the compulsive urge to scratch or pick at the skin ...
