What are the Causes of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

The exact cause of Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) has not been confirmed.

There is growing evidence that Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) has a neurobiological basis. It is no longer attributed to family problems or to attitudes learned in childhood. Patients with Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) have a set pattern of brain activity that differs from people with no mental illness. Some researchers have suggested a link between Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and head injury and infections.
