ICD-11 Criteria For Panic Attacks in Mood Episodes

 6A80.1

Description

In the context of a current mood episode (manic, depressive, mixed, or hypomanic), there have been recurrent panic attacks (i.e., at least two) during the past month that occur specifically in response to anxiety-provoking cognitions that are features of the mood episode. If panic attacks occur exclusively in response to such thoughts, panic attacks should be recorded using this qualifier rather than assigning an additional co-occurring diagnosis of panic disorder. If some panic attacks over the course of the depressive or mixed episode have been unexpected and not exclusively in response to depressive or anxiety-provoking thoughts, a separate diagnosis of panic disorder should be assigned.

Exclusions

  • Panic disorder (6B01)

Diagnostic Requirements

This specifier can be applied if, in the context of a current Episode, there have been panic attacks during the past month that occur specifically in response to depressive ruminations or other anxiety-provoking cognitions. If panic attacks occur exclusively in response to such thoughts, the ‘with panic attacks’ specifier should be applied rather than an additional co-occurring diagnosis of Panic Disorder. If some panic attacks over the course of the Depressive or Mixed Episode have been unexpected and not exclusively in response to depressive or anxiety-provoking thoughts and the full diagnostic requirements for Panic Disorder are met, a separate diagnosis of Panic Disorder should be assigned.
