Abstract: 

Objective: To assess the validity of diagnoses obtained with the Iranian version of the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV (SCID-I).

Methods: This study was undertaken in two stages: (a) translation of SCID-I into Persian (Iranian language), (b) assessing the validity of the Persian version in a sample of Iranian patients. We recruited 299 psychiatric patients- including inpatients and ambulatory cases- from 3 teaching hospitals. A trained SCID interviewer administered the SCID and then two psychiatrists developed a consensus diagnosis, using data from multiple sources.

Results: The degree of agreement between SCID interviews and psychiatrists' diagnosis ranged from "moderate" for obsessive-compulsive and major depressive disorders to "good" for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. With the psychiatrists’ diagnosis used as the gold standard, the SCID-based diagnosis showed high specificity and moderate to high sensitivity for most psychiatric diseases.
Conclusion: The results of this study indicate that the Iranian version of the SCID is a valid instrument for diagnosis in clinical settings.
