Grilo, Carlos M.; McGlashan, Thomas H.
Essential Psychopharmacology, v4 n2 p127-36 2001
This report reviews research on personality disorders (PDs) in adolescents, focusing on the prevalence of certain PDs by gender and the impact of gender on diagnosis. Empirical findings are presented pertaining to PD gender differences in adults for comparison and conclude that most DSM-III-R defined PDs are unrelated to gender. (Author)
