Personality disorder-not otherwise specified evidence of validity and consideration for DSM-5
Comprehensive Psychiatry, 05/07/2012Coccaro EF et al.
Subjects with Personality disorder–not otherwise specified (PD–NOS) are similar to subjects with specific personality disorders and differ, as expected, from Healthy and Axis I Controls on measures of psychosocial function and on various dimensions of personality and related behavior. Accordingly, PD–NOS by General Diagnostic Criteria for Personality Disorder is as valid a PD as any other specific PD by DSM criteria.
