A complex examination of 97 patients with initial manifestations of hypertensive encephalopathy was carried out. The average age of the examined patients was 46.9±13.2 years. The mandatory selection criteria were the presence of hypertension with I or II stage AH, in patients, subjective symptoms of brain damage. The patient’s quality of life and clinical and psychological characteristics were assessed. For determining the typical features of the psychoemotional sphere, a preliminary study of the intra-group similarity among patients with hypertensive encephalopathy was conducted. It was noted that the correlation coefficients in all cases were at least 0.774 for p<0.01, which indicates the presence of intragroup similarity and the existence of a stable psychoemotional of symptom complex in this given nosological group.
