The aim of this study was to identify if there are symptoms of depression in men who are not described in diagnostic manuals available. This clinical sample comprised 156 men and 174 women between 18 and 65 years prior to diagnosis of depression, and 149 men and 151 women without depression used as controls is studied. To evaluate Depression Questionnaire Depression in Men (CDH) and Interview MINI (Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview) was used. For psychometric analyzes the Rasch model was used from the Item Response Theory and multivariate comparative analysis. We conclude that men are depressed significantly different from women and that some of the symptoms identified are not considered in the current nosological systems.
