Abstract

 Introduction: This study aimed at comparing the body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) between physical education (P.E) and non-physical education (N.P.E) students of Razi University.

Methods: This study was performed using a descriptive method. 343 male and female students including 176 non-freshman P.E and 187 N.P.E were randomly cluster sampled. Next, the body dysmorphic disorder questionnaire (BDDQ) was used. Non parametric tests were used to examine the variables of the study.

Results: The results showed that the rate of BDD was 3.8 % (13 out of 343). The most rate of BDD for male N.P.E students was (5.4%) and for female N.P.E (4.1%). 

Conclusion: In general, since the rate of BDD was lower in P.E students, it seems that encouraging and informing the N.P.E students to participate in physical activities and playing sports is beneficial to decreasing the BDD in them.
