Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of current comorbid axis I and axis II disorders in patients with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Method: Fifty outpatients with OCD diagnosed according to DSM-IV criteria were included the study. Comorbid psychiatric diagnoses were assessed with SCID-I (Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV) and SCID-II (Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-III-R Personality Disorders). Results: Thirty-two (64%) patients met the criteria for at least one comorbid axis I disorder and twenty-five (50%) patients met the criteria for at least one comorbid axis II disorders. The frequency were 58% for any anxiety disorders and 52% for any mood disorders. The most common axis I disorder was major depression (46%) followed by spesific phobia (24%) and generalized anxiety disorder (22%). Among comorbid axis II disorders, cluster C personality disorders including obsessive compulsive (30%), avoidant (28%) and passive-agressive (12%) were most prevalent. Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that a considerable rate of patients with OCD have other axis I and axis II disorders.
