Body dysmorphic disorder BDD is a relatively common and often-disabling obsessive compulsive spectrum disorder that often goes unrecognized in clinical practice. The present review examines the clinical features of BDD, its relationship to other disorders, and what is known about effective treatment. BDD consists of a distressing and impairing preoccupation with imagined or slight defects in appearance that can focus on any body area. Insight is usually poor or absent; nearly half of patients are delusional. Typical associated behaviors include skin picking, mirror checking, excessive grooming, and camouflaging.
Body dysmorphic disorder BDD , also known as dysmorphophobia, is a severe psychiatric disorder that occurs around the world. However, the diagnosis is usually missed in clinical settings. It is important to recognize and diagnose BDD, because this disorder is relatively common and causes significant distress and impairment in functioning. It is also associated with markedly poor quality of life. Although research on effective treatment is still limited, serotonin reuptake inhibitors SRIs are currently considered the medication treatment of choice. For symptoms to improve, a relatively high SRI dose and at least 12 weeks of treatment is often needed.
