2000 (English)In: European Journal of Psychiatry, ISSN 0213-6163, Vol. 14, no 1, 33-41 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
he present study evaluates the relatioships between the thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (FT4), in adult life and a history of conduct disorder in 61 men from a forensic psychiatric population. The study population was divided into four groups based on the presence or not of an assessed conduct disorder, as well as a previous child psychiatric contact. The highest T3 values were found in patients with both a previous conduct disorder and a previous child psychiatric contact. There was a positive relationship between conduct disorder and serum levels of FT4. These results may indicate that T3 is a biological marker of aggressive behaviour in children.
