Persistent depressive disorder (PDD) is a type of chronic or long-term mild depression. Dysthymia and persistent major depressive disorder are two previously well-known diagnoses that are blended in this term.
Persons with PDD, like patients with other forms of depression, may feel very sad and despondent. While these symptoms appear in all types of depression, they can last for years in PDD.
Because these symptoms are persistent, they might cause problems at school, work, and in intimate relations. However, managing PDD with a mix of medication and treatment can be effective.
Persistent depressive disorder (PDD), also been known as dysthymia, is a relatively new diagnosis defined by chronic depression. The most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) merged chronic major depressive disorder and dysthymia under the framework of persistent depressive disorder, which encompasses any form of chronic depression ranging from mild to severe. In the United States, 3 to 6% of the population is affected by mental health conditions.
These diagnostic revisions account for the fact that there is no clinically substantial difference between dysthymic disorder and chronic major depressive disorder, as defined by the DSM-IV.
Dysthymia is derived from the Greek words dys, which means “sick” or “poor,” and thymia, which means “emotions” or “mind.” Dysthymic disorder or dysthymia were words used to describe a moderate, chronic form of depression.
