Abstract

The concept of pseudo-obsessive schizophrenia has been often used in the past. Clinically, severe obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) are closed from psychotic symptoms and ask questions about differential diagnosis with schizophrenia. Moreover some characterized schizophrenia may present in some cases obsessive compulsive symptoms (OCS). Finally, schizophrenia treated by atypical antipsychotics can be complicated by obsessive compulsive symptoms following the onset of the drug. Until now, there have been no control trials on this specific topic. Reviewing data of studies exploring the prevalence of OCD in schizophrenia this current article summarizes the different pharmaceutical approaches used in treating this disorder. In addition, a review about antipsychotics causing either emergence or exacerbation of OCS is presented.
