Treatment studies of subgroups of patients with minor depression are reviewed. These include studies of dysthymia, neurotic, characterological depression, 'double depression,' and follow-up studies of long-term treatment. Problems due to the ambiguity of diagnoses in terms of severity and course, small samples, inconsistent outcome measures, and limited follow- up are discussed.
