Disease Severity and Social Adjustment of Patients with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder from West Bengal
Obsessive-Compulsive disorder (OCD) is a neuropsychiatric disorder prevalent in population worldwide. In the present study we investigated OCD patients from the state of West Bengal, India. Patients were evaluated for social adjustment using Rosenzweig PF test and severity of OCD using the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS). It was found that patients from urban areas had poor social adjustment compared to those from semirural areas. Rural population fared well in adjustment in spite of disease.
