Somatic Symptom And Related Disorders

Introduction to Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders

Welcome to the Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders topic center. Formerly the “Conversion Disorders” topic center, this section reflects updates to the DSM-5 by including new diagnoses like Somatic Symptom Disorder and Illness Anxiety Disorder, which now fall under the “Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders” category rather than “Somatoform Disorders” category.*

Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders include the following: Somatic Symptom Disorder, Illness Anxiety Disorder, Conversion Disorder (Functional Neurological Symptom Disorder), Factitious Disorder, Psychological Factors Affecting Other Medical Conditions, Other Specified Somatic Symptom and Related Disorder, and Unspecified Somatic Symptom and Related Disorder. We will focus on the first four.
