Abstract

Psychopathological Characteristics of ICD-10 Diagnosed Subjects with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder One Month Following a Destructive Earthquake

Only few studies accessed the prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) one month after an earthquake. Our goal was to study the prevalence of PTSD according to ICD- 10 criteria one month following an earthquake, and to determine early appearance of psychopathological symptom dimensions for its development.
