Abstract

Sixty-six Viet Nam veterans were evaluated for posttraumatic stress disorder. Several of the DSM-III criteria for the disorder, but no other clinical features, distinguished patients diagnosed as having the disorder from others. The findings tend to validate the DSM-III construct for this disorder.
