The present study investigated behaviour pattern in seventy five patients of electrocardiographically proved coronary heart disease and compared with age and sex matched seventy five normal controls To measure type A-B behaviour in both groups a short rating scale developed by R. W. Bortner was used. It was found that patients of coronary heart disease had significantly higher score on Bortner Rating Scale and suffered more often with type A behaviour pattern as compared with normal controls. The significant correlation was also observed between type A behaviour and myocardial injury and hypercholesterolemia. No significant correlation was found between type A behaviour with age, sex, hypertension and parental history of coronary heart disease.
