Abstract

The new concept of dysthymic disorder, also reflected in the official dignostic systems, represents a major shift from the traditional view of chronic mild depression as a neurotic or personality disorder to the current concept of dysthymia as a chronic or fluctuating, low grade (subsydromal) primary mood disorder. In this review, the author describes the current nosological position of dysthymic disorder and summarises the most recent achievements on this subject.
