    Abstract:
    Physicians understanding of the pathobiobiology, diagnosis, and treatment of OCD in children and adolescents closely resembles that for OCD in adults. Moreover, it is now clear that OCD is a neurobehavioral disorder involving dysregulation in links between cortical and subcortical circuitry that is substantially influenced by serotonergic neurotransmission. Although current treatments are not generally curative, given a correct diagnosis and the skillful combination of pharmacotherapy with a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and focused cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, most children can be helped to resume a normal developmental trajectory.
