Not only are typical symptoms of OCD reviewed but common psychiatric features, as well as more atypical presentations are also summarized. Various treatments for this disorder, ranging from pharmacological and behavioral to surgical, are also noted.

The first set of articles in this course provides a broad definition, description, and etiology for OCD.
