FIERRO, Marco  and  ORTEGON, José Julián. Depressive Personality Disorder: The Senselessness of Life. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2005, vol.34, n.4, pp.581-594. ISSN 0034-7450.

Objective: To present the story of a young man who has shown depressive personality traits since infancy. Methods: Case report. Results and conclusion: Even though depressive personality disorder is described only in the annex of DSM-IV, it has been widely discussed in various publications. In this clinical case with a first person narration, a phenomenological approach is used that highlights the environment of the predominant experiences of someone with this personality disorder; namely the senselessness of life, boredom and a sensation of emptiness.

Keywords : Post-traumatic stress disorders; major depressive disorder; anxiety disorders.
