M. et al., 1987, 1988; Experience of Stress Scale, Horowitz M. J. et al, 1979]. The diagnosis of PTSD exhibited on the basis of clinical manifestations. Two veterans have been diagnosed PTSD during questioning by the method of Mississippi scale, Combat version. Findings. Clinical use of the questionnaire Mississippi scale, Combat version [Keane TM et al., 1987, 1988] allows to reveal veterans with early signs of PTSD, which is important for the early start of rehabilitation. Infrequent use of such methods in the primary care level indicates the need coverage of this topic in higher medical educational Institution and in the medical literature. A small number of veterans surveyed do not allow more serious conclusions. Research into this problem requires special attention from doctors of Ukraine, especially in the conditions of continuing military operations in the country.
