This new edition of the handbook, published by the American Psychiatric Association, gave a twist to the diagnosis of mental illness, with significant changes in their classification. This has been a relentless barrage of criticism from many sectors of Clinical Psychiatry, while the author association itself defends the simplification in order to simplify the diagnosis and investigation of these complaints. However, the clinical branch of psychiatry is not the only one that has been affected by these changes. From the forensic field you can live a major revolution with a series of consequences that are yet to be seen. I analyze how these changes affect the field of Forensic Medicine in Spain, given that there has been a parallel shift in the other reference manual, ICD-10, and if the DSM-5 provides solutions or, instead, it leads to complicate the task of the forensic psychiatrist.
