Depersonalization disorder is an uncommon disorder, characterized by persistent or recurrent episodes of a distressing subjective feeling of unreality or detachment from various aspects of the self. The condition is experienced by sufferers as a sense of disconnection or estrangement from their own body, thoughts, feelings, or behaviour, or from the outside world. In DSM-IV depersonalization disorder is classified as a dissociative disorder (300.6) while ICD-10 places it in the category of neurotic, stress-related, and somatoform disorders under the rubric of depersonalization-derealization syndrome (F48.1).
