Pervasive Developmental Disorders are very serious, lifelong treating conditions. The diagnostic category of Pervasive Developmental Disorders includes: Autistic Disorder, Rett Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, Asperger Disorder and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified. Epidemiological studies show their increasing incidence and it is, therefore, of great importance to have more knowledge and a better awareness of them. This paper reviews the recent research literature on diagnostic criteria, with similarities and differences among categories of Pervasive Developmental Disorders in their clinical picture, as well as the recommendation of a new view of Autistic Spectrum Disorders. A multidisciplinary team is of a great importance in clinical evaluation and treatment.
