Abstract: 
Objective: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a prevalent psychiatric illness which sometimes starts during childhood and adolescence, and epidemiological studies show a high prevalence of obsessive symptoms (non-clinical obsession) among the adolescent population. Even though the concept of obsession has been discussed for many years, the diagnostic criteria for OCD has been developing in recent years and part of this is due to the fact that obsession shows a co-occurrence with other disorders.
Method: The present study was of cross-sectional descriptive type where 909 male and female secodary school students were randomly selected from the cities of Maybod and Ardakan. The subjects were assessed using Maudsley Obsessive Compulsive Inventony (MOCI), 90 question symptom checklist (SCL-90-R), and demographic questionnaire. In the first stage all subjects completed MOCI and SCL-90-R questionnaires, and in the second stage those who had a Maudsley score higher than 15 were evaluated.
Results: The results showed that the prevalence rate of obsessive symptoms among adolescents was 11.2%.
The highest co-occurrence of obsessive symptoms was with "depressive" and "anxiety" disorders. Also, useful predictors for OCD were the levels of "aggresson", "phobia", and "somatic symptoms".
In assessing the risk factors related to obsession, no significant relationship was found between birth order, parent education, family income, age, and gender with obsessive symptoms.
Conclusion: Recent findings about the high prevalence of obsessive-compulsive symptoms in the non-clinical population can suggest that the presence of obsessive symptmoms among adolescents is a normal phenomenon and can bring about a new approach in theoretical discussions of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
