Abstract

As a result of long-time examination of 306 patients with a history of craniocerebral injuries some variants of the psychopathy-like syndrome, such as, asthenic, explosive, hyperthymic and apathic ones, were revealed. In addition, a hyperthymic variant with a moral defect and the same variant with hypersocial behaviour are described. The patients' behaviour and social adaptation and dysadaptation are determined to a great extent by the peculiarities of the clinical picture of one or another variant of the psychopathy-like syndrome.
