Abstract: The Fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) has a category of disorders termed “other specified paraphilic disorders” (OSPD). The DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for these disorders are contradictory, on the one hand referring to symptoms characteristic of a paraphilic disorder and, on the other hand, referring to symptoms that do not meet the full criteria for any of the disorders in the paraphilic disorders class. In this chapter, paraphilias meeting diagnostic criteria for OSPD are presented and discussed. Telephone scatologia, necrophilia, and zoophilia are briefly discussed, and the recent literature on these topics is reviewed.
