The etiology and pathophysiology of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) have not been delineated. The authors report a 24-year-old man who developed BDD at age 21 after an inflammatory brain process. Neuroimaging studies showed new atrophy in the frontotemporal region. The authors review cases from the literature with similar clinical features and neuroimaging findings as well as discuss the possible correlation between the neuroanatomic lesion and the clinical presentation of BDD in the patient. 
The pathophysiology of body dysmorphic disorder.
TLDR
Findings from genetic, brain lesion, neuroimaging, neuropsychological, and psychopharmacological studies are reviewed to develop a tentative model of the functional neuroanatomy of body dysmorphic disorder.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder
  • C. Mackley
  • Medicine

  • 2005
TLDR
Body dysmorphic disorder is a relatively common psychiatric disorder in which patients typically present to cosmetic surgeons for treatment of their perceived or imagined defect, and surgical treatments usually prove unsatisfactory to the patient and to the practitioner.
Understanding the psychopathology of body dysmorphic disorder in cosmetic surgery patients: a literature review
TLDR
Individuals with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) may seek cosmetic surgery to correct a perceived defect and the relationship of BDD to other disorders (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, anorexia nervosa, social anxiety, and Rev. Cir.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder: A Review of Current Nosological Issues and Associated Cognitive Deficits
Recent study into body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) has raised questions about the validity of its current diag- nostic classification as well as categorical division into 'psychotic' and
What the Cognitive Deficits in Body Dysmorphic Disorder Tell Us about the Underlying Neurobiology: An Investigation of Three Cases
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) has only recently received attention in current research. As such, little is understood with regards to the underlying cognitive impairments and neurobiological
The clinical profile of right temporal lobe atrophy.
TLDR
The combination of clinical features associated with predominant right temporal lobe atrophy differs significantly from those associated with the other syndromes associated with focal degeneration of the frontal and temporal lobes and it is proposed that this right temporal variant should be considered a separate syndromic variant of frontotemporal lobar degeneration.
Body dysmorphic disorder and obsessive–compulsive disorder: similarities, differences and the classification debate
TLDR
The association between obsessive–compulsive disorder and body dysmorphic disorder as evidenced by the emerging literature is described, and theoretical and clinical implications of this association are presented.
What Causes BDD: Research Findings and a Proposed Model.
TLDR
An overarching, yet preliminary, model of the etiological and pathophysiological processes that appear to contribute to the development and maintenance of body dysmorphic disorder is generated and it is hoped that this model informs clinicians’ thinking about how to understand patients with BDD.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Cosmetic Surgery
TLDR
Because of the frequency with which persons with body dysmorphic disorder pursue cosmetic procedures, providers of cosmetic surgical and minimally invasive treatments may be able to identify and refer these patients for appropriate mental health care.

TLDR
The training of professionals to systematically investigate, diagnose, and refer patients to adequate psychiatric treatment is essential, considering the high prevalence of Body Dysmorphic Disorder in dermatological patients and the fact that cosmetic treatments rarely improve their condition.

  • K. Phillips

TLDR
Diagnostic controversies and challenges associated with body dysmorphic disorder are discussed: the underdiagnosis and misdiagnosis of BDD, the relationship between BDD and obsessive-compulsive disorder, the relationships between B DD and depression, the delusionality controversy, and whether BDD can be diagnosed in children and adolescents.
Characteristics of memory dysfunction in body dysmorphic disorder
TLDR
Investigating the nature of memory dysfunction in BDD found that group differences in free recall were statistically mediated by deficits in organizational strategies in the BDD cohort, similar to patterns previously observed in obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD).

TLDR
The implications are that frontal and temporal lobe lesions may be sufficient to precipitate OCD in the absence of clear striatal injury and that compulsivity and impulsivity may represent different psychophysiological states.
Behavior and treatment in frontotemporal dementia
TLDR
The authors review the behavioral changes seen in frontotemporal dementia and describe pharmacologic interventions for these behavioral syndromes.
Complex compulsive behaviour in the temporal variant of frontotemporal dementia
TLDR
Temporal lobe atrophy appears to mediateCCB in patients with FTD, especially if asymmetry of atrophy is present, and future studies with quantitative and volumetric measurements of the cortical and subcortical structures may further clarify the aetiology of CCB in FTD.
A compulsive collecting behavior following an A-com aneurysmal rupture.
TLDR
A 46-year-old man with pathologic collecting behavior after a left orbitofrontal and caudate injury from an aneurysmal rupture of anterior communicating artery is reported, who was restricted to one specific item (toy bullet).
Ipsilateral neglect in a patient following a unilateral frontal lesion
TLDR
A patient with a right frontal lesion who showed a similar phenomenon on sequential line bisection tasks, showing left-sided neglect on line bisections that enhanced with sequential trials.
Ipsilesional neglect: behavioural and anatomical features
TLDR
It is indicated that right sided frontal or subcortical injury may induce contralateral attentional or intentional “approach” behaviours, and may be induced by an attentional bias, an intentional bias, or both.
Line bisection in hemianopia
  • J. Barton, S. Black
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Journal of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry
  • 1998
TLDR
Manual line bisection in 30 patients with unilateral cerebral hemispheric lesions was examined, finding that contralateral bisection bias was more evident in those whose field defect involved the macular region, and no bias was seen in patients with neither field defects nor hemineglect.
Displacement of the egocentric visual midline in altitudinal postchiasmatic scotomata
TLDR
Vertical and horizontal bar bisection was assessed in six patients with homonymous altitudinal scotomata, four of whom had additional hemianopic scotomas, and location of the scotoma predicted direction of the shift of the egocentric midline but not degree of shift.
