The relationship of DSM-III-R personality disorder to clinical variables in patients with major depression : Possible difference between personality disorder clusters.
The relationship of DSM-III-R personality disorder (PD) to demographic and clinical variables was investigated based on 96 consecutive outpatients with major depression.
No significant difference in the variables was found between those with and those without PD.
Those with PD from each cluster were compared with those without PD in terms of the variables.
In these comparisons many relationships of PD to the variables were found, and these relationships were different between the three PD clusters detailed in DSM-III-R.
Patients with cluster B PD demonstrated a prominent uniqueness in his/her relationship to the variables.
This uniqueness was similar to what had been reported previously with regard to patients with PD.
There was no significant difference in the variables between those with cluster C PD and those without PD.
Those with cluster A PD may have a negative family history of affective disorders.
