Clinically significant hoarding in obsessive-compulsive disorder: results from an Indian study
Comprehensive Psychiatry, 07/27/2012
Chakraborty V et al. – The results suggest that clinically significant hoarding is relatively prevalent in Indian patients with obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and that it appears to be largely unrelated to the OCD phenotype. However, the presence of comorbid hoarding is associated with more severe OCD, high comorbidity, more suicidal attempts, and a lower level of functioning. The results contribute to the current nosologic debate around hoarding disorder and provide a unique transcultural perspective.
