Psychopathy[edit]

Social cognition

Differential diagnosis: associated and overlapping conditions[edit]

Psychopaths may also have the following other conditions[1] although, in contrast to APD, comorbidity among psychopaths is generally found to be low[2][3].

It has been suggested that psychopathy may be comorbid with several other diagnoses[4], however limited work on comorbidity has been carried out. This may be because of difficulties in using inpatient groups from certain institutions to assess comorbidity, owing to the likelihood of some bias in sample selection[1]. Furthermore, it has been suggested that comorbidity may be more reflective of categories and diagnostic criteria in the DSM-IV than in the underlying aetiologically separate conditions[2].
