Both are personality disorders so they are subcategories and therefore related. They are in different clusters (cluster B for narcissistic PD and cluster C for OCPD) but both can cause interpersonal difficulties. Narcissistic personality disorder involves a grandiose view of self and self-centeredness, often due to low-self esteem. They are highly sensitive to criticism and other narcissistic injuries. People with OCPD tend to be perfectionists who require high levels of rules, regulation, and order. They have a strong desire for control.
