METHOD: This a retrospective study from record of twelve hundred and eight patients who attended psychiatric department of Isra University Hospital Hyderabad, out of which 138 were OCD; who were compared with the rest of the population. These were also studied with reference to gender, catchment area and family type. RESULTS: Cases with obsessive compulsive disorder were clustered in birth order-one. Total 44% of OCD patients were found out to be birth order-one as compared to 19.40% of the rest of the psychiatric population.
