Abstract

The treatment and clinical features of eight adolescents with obsessive compulsive disorder severe enough to warrant hospitalization are described. Attempts to use behaviour therapy failed, due to lack of co-operation from the patients. Nevertheless, response to non-specific psychotherapy and milieu therapy was surprisingly good. These observations are somewhat different from those reported in previous literature. The reasons for this difference are discussed.
