Abstract
Apathy defined as a loss of motivation and interest for novelty is a frequent symptom encountered in a number of psychiatric and somatic disorders. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the many different medical contexts where apathy may occur and help clinicians to differentiate it from a depressive syndrome. The treatment of apathy requires a diagnostic clarification in order to treat the underlying condition. Then, pharmacological or non-pharmacological interventions may help to specifically improve apathy.
