However, they do not experience more psychiatric disorder in comparison to the general population, except for personality disorders and depression. We discussed problems concerning depression's assessment tool. Patients also present symptoms of several personality disorders: avoidant personality disorder was the most common. Finally, coping strategies relative to limitations resulting from their disease have a negative impact on their quality of life.Conclusions: In conclusion, Myotonic Dystrophy type 1 patients did not present homogeneous psychopathological and psychological features.
