Adult panic-anxiety syndrome is a psychiatric disorder characterized by recurrent and unpredictable panic attacks that may last an unpredictable length of time. Such attacks start with intense fear and apprehension, and may evolve into feelings of doom. There is no apparent cause for the symptoms, such as threat of danger or attack. Adult panic-anxiety syndrome appears to be, in a number of cases, caused by biochemical factors. However, like some other anxiety disorders, it may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.
