"There are many theories that have been developed to explain the causes of this type of diseases, and the most important of these theories the one provided that there is a chemical change takes place in the body of the infected person," he said.

"Furthermore,  there are those who say that the disease is linked to some extent by biological and genetic factors," Hafez added.

Hafez said that the methods of treating this type of mental and neurological diseases vary, where the doctor supervising the situation to give medicines that enable access to control the symptoms of this disease, such as drugs used in the treatment of depression, known as antidepressants. He added that patient may subject to behavioral therapy, may have to change some of the social patterns that come back to these ideas, stressing that the patient may undergo electrical treatment in some cases.

"If all types of treatments have been exhausted without any positive result, the doctor may have to perform surgery for this patient. Surgery is the last type of treatment for this disease," Dr. Hafez concluded.
