   I was reading the latest Reader's Digest today and there was an
interesting article about compulsive/obsessive disorder.  The author
presented a biological reason (autoimmune attack of the ganglion as a
result of an infection of streptococcus bacteria) as the etiology in one
patient's case.  Any other thoughts on the etiology of this disorder?
