Abstract: Many studies have suggested that a genetic predisposition to the development of panic disorder exists. These studies are examined and their limitations discussed. It is suggested that only by the analysis of comprehensive family and twin data, coupled with other measures such as the search for possible single gene association or linkage and study of the children of panic disorder patients, will the mechanism for the 'familiarity' noted in panic disorder patients be elucidated. Delineation of the mode of transmission of panic disorder may allow preventative intervention with those at risk before they develop panic.
