Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a frequent and disabling psychic illness. Along psychiatric history, several etiological models have been successively hypothesized to explain the obsessive compulsive symptoms from a psychological, behavioural or biological point of view. This review aims at presenting OCD etiological models as well as describing OCD clinical and therapeutic aspects.
