Body dysmorphic disorder
Body dysmorphic disorder is defined by a preoccupation of one or more non-existent or slight defects or flaws in the physical appearance. The prevalence is 1.7-2.4% in the general population with a higher incidence rate in women. The rate of suicidal ideation is as high as 80%, and up to 25% of the patients attempt to commit suicide. Comor­­­­bidities, such as obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, and anxiety, are frequent. These patients may seek cos­metic or dermatologic rather than psychological treatment. In the view of the high prevalence and risk of suicide, recognizing this disorder is important.
