PTSD is a clinical condition that represents one of the psychic responses to a traumatic event and was incorporated as such in the international psychiatric diagnostic classifications in 1980. In this article, we review the development of the concept from ancient Greece up to the DSM-IV-TR, its diverse definitions and its relation with the concepts of stress and trauma. Also, risk factors, epidemiology, comorbidity and clinical evolution are discussed, in order to provide clinical psychiatrists with up to date information on this pathology that constitues a public health problem
