Prognosis of borderline personality disorder

What is the prognosis of borderline personality disorder?

While personality or character is thought to consolidate in early adulthood as a result of life experience, personality disorders are independent paradigms based on personality trait extremes that incorporate numerous maladaptive behavioral responses.

However, a 10-year follow-up study demonstrated that 88% of patients with borderline personality disorder entered remission, at which time they no longer meet criteria for the disorder.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a disorder of mood and how a person interacts with others. It’s the most commonly recognised personality disorder.

In general, someone with a personality disorder will differ significantly from an average person in terms of how he or she thinks, perceives, feels or relates to others.
