314 Hyperkinetic syndrome of childhood

          Disorders in which the essential features are short attention-span and
          distractibility. In early childhood the most striking symptom is disinhibited,
          poorly organized and poorly regulated extreme overactivity but in adolescence
          this may be replaced by underactivity. Impulsiveness, marked mood fluctua-
          tions and aggression are also common symptoms. Delays in the development of
          specific skills are often present and disturbed, poor relationships are
          common. If the hyperkinesis is symptomatic of an underlying disorder, code
          the underlying disorder instead.
