Abstract

Background: Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is characterized by an excessive and distressful preoccupation with an imagined defect in physical appearance. Objective: The current knowledge about this disorder is reviewed. Method: The findings of recent research on BDD are examined. Results: Currentlyclassified as a somatoform disorder, BDD also shares similarities with other disorders defined as obsessive-compulsive spectrum. It is probably more common than generally realized. High comorbidity rates have been found withdepression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. With regard to its etiology, somatic and cognitive-behavioral theories are presented. Preliminary results of treatment studies indicate that cognitive-behavioral approaches might be effective in reducing symptoms. Conclusion: The fragmentary understanding of the etiology and the development of treatment approaches might be improved using research methods of clincial and experimental psychology.
