Other specified paraphilic disorder

  (Redirected from Paraphilia NOS)

Other specified paraphilic disorder is the term used by the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to refer to any of the many other paraphilic disorders that are not explicitly named in the manual.[1] Previous editions of the DSM used the label Paraphilia NOS or Paraphilia (Not Otherwise Specified).[2][3]

Examples listed by the DSM-5 are telephone scatologia, necrophilia, zoophilia, coprophilia, klismaphilia, and urophilia.[1] Partialism was considered a Paraphilia NOS in the DSM-IV, but was subsumed into fetishistic disorder by the DSM-5.[4] In order to be diagnosable, the interest must be recurrent and intense, present for at least six months, and cause marked distress or impairment in important areas of functioning.[1] When a specific paraphilia cannot be identified or the clinician chooses not to specify it for some other reason, the Unspecified Paraphilic Disorder diagnosis may be used instead.[5]
