Abstract

Despite the growing research collective regarding Internet Addiction (IAD) and its demographics, lifestyle influences, and predic-tors very little experimentation has been done to assess IAD comorbidities and associated physiological parameters [1]. Cross-sectional studies that have been performed often determine a high comorbidity rate of IAD with psychiatric disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and affective disorders [2]. However, despite a similar associative incidence rate, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is seldom mentioned in such analysis’. This article attempts to highlight IAD comorbidities with particular emphasis on the literature written regarding BPD and IAD. It will also examine various physiological parameters that have been assessed and suggest possible treatment modalities that may be effective for this morbidity in the future.
