The problem of disorders associated with participation in hostilities (?war syndromes?), remains relevant over a hundred years. The first scientific description of these diseases is known belongs to the American physician Jakob Mendes Da Costa. In the difficult history of the study of ?war syndrome? have proposed various hypotheses and theories based on the principles of primary somatic factors, mental or social processes. However, at this moment there is no conclusive evidence of any pre-emptive effect of one factor on the occurrence of disease. To describe the ?war syndrome? were used many terms, the most famous being the ?soldier's heart? and Da Costa's syndrome.
