Maladaptive metacogni-tion have been found to be associated with anxiety and variouspsychopathology. Also, intolerance of uncertainty is considered tobe related with anxiety and ambivalence. These characteristics areconsidered to be key characteristics of OCD. Objectives  This study conceptualized metacognition as a medi-ator in the relation between intolerance of uncertainty andobsessive-compulsive symptom.  Aims  Thisstudywasaimedtofindprerequisitesfordevelopmentof OCD. Methods  The recruitment includes 150 OCD subjects and 50healthy controls. Subjects were investigated with the metacog-nition questionnaire (MCQ) and intolerance of uncertaintyquestionnaire(IOU)asself-reportmeasures.ParticipantswithOCDcompleted the Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory-Revised (OCI-R).The OCI-R taps six OCD symptom dimensions: checking, hoarding,neutralizing, obsessing, ordering and washing. Results  OCDsubjectsshowedsignificantlyhighermetacognitionscoreandsignificantlyhigherintoleranceofuncertaintyscorethancontrol group. In OCD group, the results indicated that metacog-nition partially mediated the relationship between intolerance of uncertainty and obsessing. Conclusions  Our findings suggest that metacognition mayexplainthe mechanismbywhichintolerance of uncertaintyexertsits effect on obsession.

Because most chemotherapeutic agents do not cross theblood-brain barrier effectively and surgery is sometimes only pal-liative, radiotherapy remains the main method of treatment of these lesions. Both localized and generalized brain radiotherapyhave numerous psychiatric complications.
