Description The interest of experts in conduct disorders (CD) research is growing during the last two decades. The research areas include the diagnostics, etiopathogenesis and treatment and also the commorbidity, especially with the hyperkinetic syndrome incidence (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder-ADHD). These disorders were diagnosed in almost 5% of the ELSPAC cohort children in seven years of their age. In agreement with similar studies these frequent co-morbidities were found: sleep disorders, psychomotor development disorders and laterality changes. The cognitive abilities evaluated by mothers and also teachers based on schoolwork results were more often worsened in children with conduct disorders. Various data indicating their worse social adaptability (which significantly disturbed the class) occurred more frequently in these children.
