Synopsis

Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) is characterized by an exaggerated need for orderliness and control; an attention to detail that can miss the overall picture; and inflexibility in process and rules. Patients with OCPD can be time-consuming to work with and seem "difficult" in their need to know details beyond the physician's knowledge (eg, the check-in procedures of another department). They often feel the need to maintain "control" of the doctor-patient relationship. Individuals with OCPD will spend significant energy "checking" in a quest for perfection; as a result, they often have difficulty completing tasks. Hoarding behaviors and unnecessary frugality are also seen. These traits should rise to the level of causing functional impairment or distress in the individual. Men are diagnosed with OCPD twice as often as women.
