Importance Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a neuropsychiatric disorder associated with significant impairment and a lifetime prevalence of 1% to 3%; however, it is often missed in primary care settings and frequently undertreated. Objective To review the most current data regarding screening, diagnosis, and treatment options for OCD. Evidence Review We searched PubMed, EMBASE, and PsycINFO to identify randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and systematic reviews that… 
Pharmacotherapy of postpartum obsessive–compulsive disorder: a systematic review
TLDR
Currently there are no randomized, placebo-controlled drug trials in the acute or preventative treatment of postpartum OCD, and studies are urgently needed to address the lack of controlled data especially in women with post partum OCD alone, i.e. without comorbid psychiatric disorders.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders.
TLDR
Early intervention and appropriate treatment can substantially reduce OCD symptom severity, improve quality of life, and minimize the functional disability associated with this chronic and often debilitating illness.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Cognitive-behavioral therapy, based on the principles of exposure and response prevention, shows results superior to pharmacologic treatments with lower relapse rates on long-term follow-up and thus should be considered in the treatment plan of every patient with OCD.
Obsessive Compulsive Tic Disorder: appropriate diagnosis and treatment as key elements to improve health and rationalize use of resources
TLDR
Preliminary results show that attention is mandatory for establishing correct diagnosis and treatment guidelines for OCTD to improve health and rationally spend resources for patients and their families.
Effectiveness and safety of neuroablation for severe and treatment-resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Ablative surgeries are safe and effective for a large proportion of patients with severe and treatment-resistant OCD and capsulotomy seemed to be the most effective.
Psychopharmacological Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
TLDR
SSRI/clomipramine in combination with CBT/ERP is associated with the optimal response compared to each treatment alone or to other treatments, and the role of pharmacogenomics could become preponderant in the coming years.
Obsessive–compulsive disorder
TLDR
This Primer by Stein and colleagues discusses the epidemiology, mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of obsessive–compulsive disorder, which is a psychiatric disorder characterized by the presence of obsessions and compulsions.
Early intervention for obsessive compulsive disorder: An expert consensus statement
TLDR
There is a global unmet need for early intervention services for OC related disorders to reduce the unnecessary suffering and costly disability associated with under-treatment.
A Systematic Review of Deep Brain Stimulation Targets for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
TLDR
The striatal area is the most commonly targeted region for OCD-DBS and a common nomenclature is recommended based on this review to move the field forward to individualized therapy.
The Future of Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders: A Research Perspective.
TLDR
This concluding chapter highlights just a few areas of study that promise to influence the understanding of the pathophysiology and clinical practice of OCRD that are likely to be invaluable in shaping the future of the field.

Pharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions for management of obsessive-compulsive disorder in adults: a systematic review and network meta-analysis
TLDR
Taking all the evidence into account, the combination of psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological interventions is likely to be more effective than are psychotherAPEutic interventions alone, at least in severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Psychological treatments versus treatment as usual for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).
TLDR
The findings of this review suggest that psychological treatments derived from cognitive behavioural models are an effective treatment for adult patients with obsessive compulsive disorder.
Electroconvulsive therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder: a systematic review.
TLDR
It cannot be stated that this provides evidence that ECT is indeed effective for OCD, but 60% of the reported cases reviewed exhibited some form of a positive response to ECT, and ECT responders were less frequently previously treated with adequate trials of serotonin reuptake inhibitors and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
Evidence-based pharmacotherapy of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
Key questions related to OCD pharmacotherapy are reviewed, synthesizing evidence derived from randomized controlled trials, meta-analyses and consensus guidelines, and SSRIs are the preferred option for long-term treatment in most cases.
Cognitive behavioral treatments of obsessive-compulsive disorder. A systematic review and meta-analysis of studies published 1993-2014.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of all RCTs of CBT for OCD using the interview-based Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale, published 1993 to 2014 finds that CBT was significantly better than antidepressant medication, but the combination of CBTs and medication was not significantly better.
Meta-Analysis: Hoarding Symptoms Associated with Poor Treatment Outcome in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Patients with OCD and hoarding symptoms were significantly less likely to respond to traditional OCD treatments than OCD patients withoutHoarding symptoms, and this finding was consistent across treatment modalities.
Assessing obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): A review of self-report measures
Abstract Approximately 2–2.5% of the adult population suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) as defined by the DSM, while many people in the general population experience subclinical
Obsessive–compulsive disorder: a review of the diagnostic criteria and possible subtypes and dimensional specifiers for DSM‐V
TLDR
A number of changes to the existing diagnostic criteria for OCD are proposed, and these proposed criteria may change as the DSM‐V process progresses.
Psychological treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis on the effectiveness of psychological treatment for OCD is presented by applying random- and mixed-effects models and therapist-guided exposure was better than therapist-assisted self-exposure, and exposure in vivo combined with exposure in imagination wasbetter than exposure in vitro alone.
The epidemiology of obsessive-compulsive disorder in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication
TLDR
Evidence of a preponderance of early onset cases in men, high comorbidity with a wide range of disorders, and reliable associations between disorder severity and key outcomes may have implications for how OCD is classified in DSM-V.
