Psychological disorders encompass a wide range of conditions that affect a person’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. While there are many well-known psychological disorders, there are also other disorders that do not fit into specific diagnostic categories. These “other” psychological disorders, classified under ICPC-2 code P99, require careful evaluation and management. This guide aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the diagnostic and treatment approaches for psychological disorders, other (ICPC-2: P99).


– ICPC-2 Code: P99 Psychological disorders, other
– ICD-10 Code: F99 Mental disorder, not otherwise specified


  • Emotional instability: Frequent mood swings, irritability, or emotional outbursts.
  • Cognitive disturbances: Difficulty concentrating, memory problems, or confusion.
  • Behavioral changes: Social withdrawal, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, or self-destructive behaviors.
  • Psychotic symptoms: Delusions, hallucinations, or disorganized thinking.
  • Anxiety symptoms: Excessive worry, panic attacks, or phobias.
  • Impulsivity: Acting without thinking, engaging in risky behaviors, or difficulty controlling impulses.


  • Genetic factors: Family history of mental illness or genetic predisposition.
  • Environmental factors: Traumatic experiences, chronic stress, or substance abuse.
  • Neurochemical imbalances: Imbalances in neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, or norepinephrine.
  • Brain abnormalities: Structural or functional abnormalities in certain brain regions.
  • Developmental factors: Early childhood experiences or disruptions in normal brain development.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s personal and family medical history.
  • Assess for any risk factors, such as a history of trauma or substance abuse.
  • Evaluate the duration, severity, and progression of symptoms.
  • Inquire about any co-existing medical conditions or medications that may contribute to the symptoms.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a thorough physical examination to rule out any underlying medical conditions that may be causing or exacerbating the psychological symptoms.
  • Pay attention to any physical signs that may indicate a specific psychological disorder, such as self-inflicted injuries or signs of malnutrition.

Laboratory Tests

  • Complete blood count (CBC): To rule out any underlying medical conditions, such as anemia or infections.
  • Thyroid function tests: To assess thyroid function, as thyroid abnormalities can contribute to mood disturbances.
  • Urine drug screen: To detect any substance abuse that may be contributing to the symptoms.
  • Toxicology screen: To identify any exposure to toxins or heavy metals that may be causing or exacerbating the symptoms.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): To assess for any structural abnormalities in the brain.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan: To evaluate the brain for any abnormalities, such as tumors or bleeding.
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan: To assess brain activity and identify any areas of abnormal functioning.

Other Tests

  • Neuropsychological testing: To assess cognitive functioning, memory, and attention.
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG): To evaluate brain wave patterns and detect any abnormalities.
  • Psychological assessments: To gather information about the patient’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors through standardized questionnaires or interviews.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s progress and adjust treatment as needed.
  • Provide education to the patient and their family about the nature of the disorder, treatment options, and strategies for managing symptoms.
  • Encourage the patient to engage in therapy or support groups to enhance their coping skills and social support.
