Abstract

The question of the nosological independence and diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is considered from the theoretical point of view in relation to the multifactorial development of the disease. These questions are discussed using the sequelae of combat trauma (PTSD in combatants) as an example. The author's original concepts on the sequential development of pathos and nosos, as applied to “combat” PTSD, are presented.
