Comorbidity of Autism Spectrum and OCD

Postby crzxn » Fri Aug 21, 2015 10:38 am

In this paper, we review aspects of the comorbidity between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) in a representative manner. We consider issues of co-morbidity more generally, and then review the rates of OCD and ASD separately, before considering them together. We then consider aspects of the function significance of the interaction of the two conditions, and call for additional research into this important overlap of symptoms.
