Abstract

The authors have maintained a roster and data base on North Dakota children with PDD, with data on some patients dating back 9 years. From this data base they have reported on the coexistence of PDD and other conditions, prognostic markers in PDD patients, and predictive response to pharmacological treatment. In this paper, the authors compare and contrast the three different DSM-III defined PDDs along the dimensions of associated conditions, cognitive functioning, language functioning, possible etiologies, and other organic factors. The authors discuss the data generated from the North Dakota roster of PDD patients and other studies reported in the literature. The implications for nosological classification are also examined.
