Family aggregations for panic disorder as defined by the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-III classification were examined at the Austin Hospital in Victoria, Australia, covering 636 individuals. The results were consistent with the common genetic relatedness of parents to offspring and of sibling pairs, but also consistent with other factors common to the family. The family data alone were not sufficient to draw conclusions about the cause of aggregation.
