The aim of this study is to evaluate the work ability of persons with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The study comprised 64 patients (diagnosed according to DSM-IV and ICD-10), 44 males and 20 females, age between 25 to 50 years. ASI44 even more active before the illness occurred, namely 31 was employed, 11 persons and 2 of them were free-Iances. Before the treatment free-lances were working in spite of having symptoms, all persons were passive, and among the employees only two of them were still working actively. After the psychopharmacotherapy and tm-months of cognitive-behavioral therapy 9 employees returned to work, but not a single peasant. Before developing PTSD all women were successful housewifes but during the illness all of them became totally passive. This study demonstrates that the persons with PTSD were significant work disability in highly percentage. Also it was noticed that the persons in which the symptoms of the disorder had disappeared often remained passive, and didn’t return back to their previous job. It is concluded that PTSD presents also a significant social problem.
