Abstract Social anxiety disorder (social phobia) is a disabling psychiatric condition, characterized by a fear of negative evaluation by others. Epidemiological studies have shown a high prevalence of the condition in the general population; the disorder is more common in women than in men. Social anxiety disorder has a typical onset during adolescence and a chronic course; remission rarely occurs without therapeutic intervention. Comorbid psychiatric conditions such as depression and alcoholism commonly occur in patients with preexisting social anxiety disorder, and increase the burden of the condition. Two subtypes of social anxiety disorder have been identified: "nongeneralized" and "generalized"; the latter form causes greater disability and is more often associated with comorbidity. The socioeconomic impact of social anxiety disorder on both sufferers and the community is considerable. For a person with social anxiety disorder, quality of life is greatly reduced; work, social, and personal relationships are all affected. Social anxiety disorder demands increased recognition, so that sufferers receive the treatment they need, in order to improve their quality of life through better social functioning.
