Abstract

Hoarding behavior is named as pathological collecting, which involves saving of many useless objects that seem to be worthless to others. Obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and anxiety disorders are psychiatric disorders that are considered as frequent comorbid conditions for hoarding disorders. A general review which explained and analyzed the comorbidities of hoarding disorder was conducted. This paper also included pharmacologic treatment and psychotherapy for hoarding disorder and how comorbidity impacts the treatment. This review focused on research into comorbidity and hoarding disorder published between 1980 and 2021 based on Google Scholar. The results suggested that obsessive compulsive disorder and depression are the two leading comorbidities of hoarding disorder. Evidence has also confirmed the positive effects posed by cognitive behavioral therapy as well as emphasized the negative effects caused by comorbidity on the treatment outcomes. However, further studies into hoarding disorder are required and highly promoted.
