Differenze di genere nel Disturbo Ossessivo-Compulsivo nei pazienti in trattamento con fluvoxamina
Gender differences in Obsessive-Compulsive disorder in patients in treatment on fluvoxamine

Objective

Aim of the study was to evaluate gender differences in a group of patients with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder treated with fluvoxamine.

Methods

76 OCD patients (44 males) were selected on the basis of the "retrospective chart review". The patients were evaluated with Y-BOCS interview before and after 6 months of fluvoxamine treatment.

Results

No gender differences in Y-BOCS measurements were seen before and after treatment. On the Y-BOCS checklist, the female patients showed a more polymorphic symptom profile. However no gender differences were seen in the fluvoxamine treatment, that reduced OCD symptoms, especially obsession, at the level in both male and female patients.
