According to an increasing number of studies and evidences, it seems that loneliness, due to socio-demographic and cultural changes, globalization and ongoing digital revolution of the modern age, is turning into a pathological condition that reveals the characters of a real epi-demic disease, with its own sets of symptoms and risk factors. The present systematic review shows how loneliness, perceived as a phenomenon that goes across to generations and coun-tries, is able to determine the emergence of clinical signs of morbidity, comorbidity and to in-crease the risk of early mortality, especially in absence of adequate policies.
Keywords: Loneliness; Disease; Mortality; Modernity; Change; Socio-demographic Dynamics.
