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 ...

N2 - Background: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common and debilitating neuropsychiatric illness thought to involve abnormal connectivity of widespread brain networks, including frontal-striatal-thalamic circuits. 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.. ...

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. Yet, if they truly believe the articles are having no effect then why all the whining and bellyaching about these articles? In addition, they repeatedly plead to edit the atheism and evolution articles despite the fact they are quickly rebuffed and sometimes taunted for the foolishness of their requests. ...

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. If moderate-intensity aerobic exercise is efficacious in helping individuals with OCD manage obsessions and compulsions, this will establish that aerobic exercise may be a valuable adjunct to other OCD treatments such as medication and therapy ...
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 type of anxiety disorder in which a person has unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead him to engage in repetitive behaviors (compulsions). A person affected with OCD may realize that his obsessions are not reasonable and may try to ignore or stop them, but he is driven to perform compulsive acts in an effort to ease his distress. OCD usually centers on themes which lead to ritualistic behaviour that ultimately affects the persons life. Genetics, environmental factors and reduced levels of brain neuro-transmitters are believed to cause OCD. A family history, stressful life events and pregnancy are believed to be risk factors for OCD.. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been shown to be the most effective form of therapy for OCD in both children and adults. One particular approach in CBT, called exposure and response prevention, helps a person with OCD to manage his obsessions and compulsions and lead a better quality of life. ...
Most people with obsessive-compulsive disorder have both obsessions and compulsions, but occasionally a person will have just one or the other. The degree to which this condition can interfere with daily living also varies. Some people are barely bothered, while others find the obsessions and compulsions to be profoundly traumatic and spend much time each day in compulsive actions. Because the symptoms are so distressing, sufferers often hide heir fears and rituals but cannot avoid acting on them. OCD sufferers are often unable to decide if their fears are realistic and need to be acted upon. Obsessions are intrusive, irrational thoughts that keep popping up in a persons mind, such as the urgency to wash ones hands again. Typical obsessions include fears of dirt, germs, contamination, and violent or aggressive impulses. Other obsessions include feeling responsible or others safety or an irrational fear of hitting a pedestrian with a car. Additional obsessions can involve excessive religious ...
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a specific form of anxiety characterized by repetitive, unwanted intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and irrational, excessive urges to do certain actions (compulsions). For some people, the compulsive behavior comes from trying to reduce anxiety or obsessions. Genetics tend to play an important role; if you, your parent or a sibling have OCD, there is almost a 25% chance that another family member will have it.. OCD can look different for different people; for some, it involves cleaning self and spaces compulsively; for others, the OCD might present in the form of counting, tapping, or something numeric, or a myriad of other forms.. Each person is unique, and should explore the options and select for themselves the most effective coping mechanisms for dealing with OCD. That being said, many people have found successful treatment for OCD through things like psychotherapy (specifically a form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy called Exposure and Response ...
He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything." - Arabian Proverb. Wikipedia defines scrupulosity as a psychological disorder "characterized by pathological guilt about moral or religious issues. It is personally distressing, objectively dysfunctional, and often accompanied by significant impairment in social functioning".. Religious practice and devotion are not necessarily the cause of scrupulosity. Scrupulosity is considered a form of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). OCD can occur in different forms. There are a variety of different types of obsessions and compulsions. The nature of intensity of these symptoms may vary over time. In some cases, aggressive, sexual and religious obsessions can occur together in the same individual.. The obsessions in OCD are the recurrent thoughts or impulses that make an individual anxious (such as the fear of germs in public places making one sick). Despite an individuals efforts to control and suppress the obsessive thoughts, the ...

Endophenotypes (intermediate phenotypes) are objective, heritable, quantitative traits hypothesized to represent genetic risk for polygenic disorders at more biologically tractable levels than distal behavioural and clinical phenotypes. It is theorized that endophenotype models of disease will help to clarify both diagnostic classification and aetiological understanding of complex brain disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). To investigate endophenotypes in OCD, we measured brain structure using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and behavioural performance on a response inhibition task (Stop-Signal) in 31 OCD patients, 31 of their unaffected first-degree relatives, and 31 unrelated matched controls. Both patients and relatives had delayed response inhibition on the Stop-Signal task compared with healthy controls. We used a multivoxel analysis method (partial least squares) to identify large-scale brain systems in which anatomical variation was associated with variation in ...
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), usually begins in adolescence or young adulthood and is seen in as many as 1 in 200 children and adolescents. OCD is characterized by recurrent obsessions and/or compulsions that are intense enough to cause severe discomfort.
