Özet

Objective: Avoidant personality disorder (APD) is highly comorbid with social phobia (SP), particularly the specific subtype of SP, generalized SP (GSP). Patients with SP and APD have greater social impairment and depressive comorbidity; thus, we investigated the extent of the effect of APD on the psychopathology of GSP.
