In this paper, panic disorder is described and the possible causes are reviewed. A hierarchical organization is presented in which causes extend from general causes of neurotic disorders to specific causes of particular symptoms. One particular cause of relevance to panic disorder is anxiety sensitivity. The pharmacological and psychological treatments for panic disorder are then reviewed and discussed in the context of anxiety sensitivity. (C) 2002 Lippincott Williams Wilkins.
