Axis I and Axis II psychiatric disorders in patients with fibromyalgia



Axis I and Axis II psychiatric disorders in patients with fibromyalgia



General Hospital Psychiatry 32(1): 105-107



To determine the current prevalence of Axis I and Axis II psychiatric disorders in patients with fibromyalgia. The study sample includes 103 patients with fibromyalgia and 83 control subjects. Axis I and Axis II disorders were determined by structured clinical interviews. The rate of any Axis I psychiatric disorder (47.6% vs. 15.7%), major depression (14.6% vs. 4.8%), specific phobia (13.6% vs. 4.8%), any Axis II disorder (31.1% vs. 13.3%), obsessive-compulsive (23.3% vs. 3.6%) and avoidant (10.7% vs. 2.4%) personality disorders were significantly more common in the patient group compared to the control group. Our results suggest that a considerable proportion of patients with fibromyalgia also present with Axis I and Axis II psychopathologies.
