  1. Obsessive-compulsive disorder comorbid with borderline personality disorder : A long-term case study.

    Article - En anglais

    Three case reports of patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) for more than 10 years are used to illustrate the relationship between OCD and borderline pathology.

    The recognizable features of the obsessive-compulsive symptoms in these reports are :

    • (i) pervasiveness, the symptomatic overlap of obsessive-compulsive symptoms ;

    • (ii) poor insight and resistance ;

    • and (iii) obsessive control evident in personal relationships.

    These features are manifestations of OCD psychopathology as well as of a personality disorder.

    The symptoms with these features are located hypothetically towards the severe end of the symptomatic spectrum of OCD.

    The comorbidity is not a simple relationship, and the symptomatology of the comorbid patient is derived from OCD pathology linked with the personality disorder rather than from independent BPD pathology.
