Introduction: Neurocognitive evaluations have revealed that patients with obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) may manifest similar deficits in neuropsychological functions as patients with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The purpose of the present study was to investigate the neurocognitive
function of planning in OCD and OCPD patients.
Methods: To investigate the problem-solving function in different subject groups, 25 OCPD patients , 20 OCD patients and 25 healthy subjects, aging 20 to 50 years, were recruited. All participants underwent the Tower of London (TOL) test.
Results: Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) indicated significant differences between OCD and OCPD patients in terms of planning. In addition, findings suggested - significant differences between patients with OCD and healthy subjects also OCPD and healthy subjects with regards to their planning function.
Conclusion: Our results indicated that patients with OCD and OCPD have comparable range of cognitive impairments in problem-solving domain versus controls.
