Background: The Authors sought to evaluate current prevalence of mental disorders in patients affected by metabolic syndrome compared with patients affected by central obesity alone. Methods: 186 (63.5%) patients affected by central obesity and 107 (36.5%) affected by metabolic syndrome according to ICF criteria were interviewed by means of SCID I. Results: Axis I current prevalence was respectively 45.7% and 44.9% among patients with central obesity and patients with metabolic syndrome, differences which were not significant. No statistically significant differences were found between groups as far as each single axis I diagnostic category were considered. Moreover, current prevalence of any axis I, anxiety and mood disorders were independent of the number of components of metabolic syndrome. Conclusion: metabolic syndrome is associated to an higher risk for current mental disorders, which seems to be mainly due to the strong association of central obesity to psychopathology.
