The aim of the current study was to analyze psychometric proper-ties of the Short LOI-CV in Spanish community sample. Participants were 914 children and adolescents with a mean age of 13.01 years (51.3% males). The EFA yielded a three-factor model representing Obsessions, Compulsions, and Cleanliness dimensions. Both, total score and subscales showed an adequate internal consistency. The Spanish version also exhib-ited good test-retest reliability and moderate convergent and discriminant validity. The younger participants (from 8 to 10 years) obtained higher means for total score and subscales than older participants (groups 11-13 and 14-18 years). Significant differences related to gender were also ob-served since males obtained higher means in Compulsions subscale. De-spite more research is required, this results suggested that Spanish version of the Short LOI-CV showed a good psychometric performance assessing obsessive-compulsive symptoms in community population.g
