To find the prevalence of somatoform disorders (SDs) among internal medical inpatients and to study the comorbidity with other psychiatric disorders. Methods Of 392 eligible consecutive medical inpatients, 294 (75%) accepted to participate and, using a two-phase design, were assessed for ICD and DSM-IV somatoform diagnoses and for ICD-10 psychiatric diagnoses.
atients presenting functional somatic symptoms (i.e., medically unexplained symptoms) are common in all types of medical settings , ,  and . In general medicine, these patients are diagnosed using a broad spectrum of labels depending on the specialty or beliefs of the treating physician . In research, the term somatisation has been widely used on these patients, but somatisation has been defined in various ways. Only a few studies have used the DSM-IV and ICD-10 (or earlier) criteria for somatoform disorders (SDs), and these studies have investigated a few diagnostic categories only, mostly the somatisation disorder and the hypochondriasis diagnosis. One of the reasons for this is that the commonly used standardized diagnostic interviews, e.g., the CIDI , explore only a few of the somatoform diagnoses. To our knowledge, no studies exist on the prevalence of SDs among internal medical inpatients according to ICD-10 or DSM-IV criteria. The aims of this study were to find the prevalence of somatoform and related disorders among consecutively admitted internal medical inpatients and their comorbidity with other psychiatric disorders. In a series of articles other aspects of this patient sample have been described and linked to mental and SDs, such as use of health services  and , complexity of inpatient care , and health perception  and .
