Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a debilitating disorder defined by intrusive thoughts or images and/or compulsory behaviors. Recent diagnostic, neurobiological, genetic, and therapeutic advances have been made to better understand the etiology and treatment of this disorder. This research has even led to significant changes in the diagnostic criteria of OCD, as seen in the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The present paper comprehensively reviews the most recent research in OCD, including findings in classification, related disorders and OCD subtypes, neuropsychology, genetics, and treatment efficacy.
