Author information

Department of Psychiatry, Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Puducherry, India.


Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one of the more disabling and potentially chronic anxiety disorders that occurs in several medical settings. However, it is often under-recognized and under-treated. The condition is now known to be prevalent among children and adolescents. Obsessional images as a symptom occur less frequently than other types of obsessions. In this report, we describe a young boy who presented himself predominantly with obsessional images. The diagnostic and treatment challenges in juvenile OCD are discussed.
