Resumo Introduction. Marked intolerance or intrusive re-experiencing of ordinary sensory stimuli that in turn drive functionally impairing compulsive behaviors are occasionally seen in voting children with OCD.Methods. We describe a number of children with DSM-IV OCD ascertained from of family genetic study of pediatric OCD, whose intolerance: of ordinary sensory stimuli created significant subjective distress and time-consuming ritualistic behavior that was clinically impairing.Results. in each case these sensory symptoms were the primary presenting symptoms and were experienced in the absence of intrusive thoughts, images, or ideas associated with conventional OCD symptoms.Conclusions. These symptoms suggest abnormalities in sensory processing and integration in at least a subset of OCD patients. Recognition of these sensory symptoms and sensory-driven behaviors as part of the broad phenotypic Variation in children with OCD could help clinicians more easily identify OCD patients and,facilitate treatment.
