These differences reflect different diagnostic criteria and different instruments used in different studies and, to a certain extent, cultural differences. In the general population, panic disorder without agoraphobia seems to be more common than panic disorder with agoraphobia, as the former type is found in one-half to two-thirds of all persons with panic disorder (American Psychiatric Association, 2000). In contrast, panic disorder without agoraphobia is less often encountered in clinical samples than is panic disorder with agoraphobia.

In other words, for the diagnosis of panic disorder to be made, panic attacks must not be a part of another psychiatric condition. The relationship between panic disorder and agoraphobia is also of diagnostic importance. As already noted, in the DSM system agoraphobia is conceived of as a complication of panic disorder or a condition secondary to panic disorderâ hence the diagnosis of panic disorder with agoraphobia. â Moreover, ICD-10 imposes a diagnostic hierarchy in that a diagnosis of panic disorder is precluded by the simultaneous presence of phobic disorders or major depressive disorder.

Although it may resemble agoraphobic avoidance, such behavior is not driven by fear. It is due to a pervasive loss of volition, interest, and energy, which is typical of depression. It is important to remember this distinction, because many patients with agoraphobia become depressed, and in that clinical scenario, the staying-at-home behavior may be a consequence of depression rather than a manifestation of agoraphobia. In relatively rare situations, a psychotic illness may need to be considered in the differential diagnosis of agoraphobia.
