Abstract

In the last 20 years, technology is increasingly integrated into daily life. Daily interactions with smart devices have become routine with much of our lives taking place in a digital environment. It is therefore not surprising that the manifestations of psychiatric disorders including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder have changed in recent years reflecting this reality. Clinicians should be aware of the potential impact of such changes when considering symptom presentation and diagnosis.
