    Like alcoholism and schizophrenia, antisocial personality, or sociopathy, has a significant genetic component, albeit associated with major environmental influences. Diagnostic criteria, chief among them early onset, are helpful - but not necessarily predictive - in distinguishing the true sociopath from the criminal with no personality disorder. Characteristic medical problems associated with sociopathy are discussed.
