Abstract

A number of studies tested for the presence of different homogeneous subgroups of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patients depending on the age at onset (AAO). However, none of the various thresholds of AAO have been validated. No study examined whether age at symptoms onset (ASO) and age at disorder onset (ADO) each define specific and diverse OCD subgroups.
