Abstract

We examined gender differences in DSM-III-R personality disorders in psychiatrically hospitalized young adults. Structured diagnostic interviews were reliably performed on a consecutive series of 118 inpatients. Men were significantly more likely to meet criteria for cluster A, schizotypal, and antisocial personality disorders. To reduce variability due to axis I heterogeneity, we retested for gender differences in a subgroup of patients with major depression. Depressed men were more likely to meet criteria for cluster A, schizotypal, and cluster C personality disorders. Women were not observed to have a higher frequency of any personality disorder than men in either study group.
