 +**Hypochondriasis** is a mental disorder characterized by preoccupation or fears of having a serious disease based on misinterpretation of bodily symptoms, in the DSM-IV-TR. Approximately 75% of individuals previously diagnosed with hypochondriasis are subsumed under the new diagnosis of [[somatic:​dsm-5:​somatic-symptom|somatic symptom disorder]] in the DSM-5. The remaining 25% of individuals with hypochondriasis have high health anxiety in the absence of somatic symptoms, and fall into the [[somatic:​dsm-5:​illness-anxiety|illness anxiety disorder]] diagnosis.
