Background. Ischemic stroke and its physical and psychological consequences for the patient are the main socio-medical problems of neurology. Determining the type of attitude toward disease will provide an opportunity to assess the psychophysical state of the patient, help him in choosing the right treatment and identify the vectors for recovery in order to return a person to social and physical activity in society. The purpose of the study was to diagnose the types of attitudes toward the disease and other personal relationships associated with it in patients with the consequences of transient ischemic stroke and in patients with chronic cerebral ischemia. Results. In the group of patients with the effects of transient ischemic stroke the following types of personality relationships and relation to the disease were observed: the harmonic type of relationship (0%), the neurasthenic type of relationship was found at 23%, an alarming type of relation – at 26% of the respondents, the egocentric type – at 10 %, hypochondria-type – at 18%, sensitized type – at 9%, apatitic type –at 8% of patients, an anozotics type – at 4% of patients, paranoid (1%) and obsessive-phobic (1%) type related to illness and personal relationship was observed only in patients of male with the effects ischemic stroke. Distribution of types of attitudes toward the disease in the control group of patients suffering from chronic cerebral ischemia was as follows. A harmonic type of relation was observed at 35% of patients, the neurasthenic type – at 20%, the sensitivity type – at 10%, the egocentric type  – at 5%, the hypochondria ratio – at 5%, the anosomalous type and mixed type, an anesthetic + neurasthenic was detected at 10% of patients respectively; anxiety type was detected at 10% of patients with HIM, mixed anxiety + neurasthenic type ratio, found at 5% of patients. Conclusions. It is stated that in a group of patients with the consequences of transmitted ischemic stroke, there was not found any harmonic type of relation to the illness and other personal relationships. In the group of patients with chronic cerebral ischemia, the distribution of the types of relation to the disease occurs with a predominance of harmonic and neurasthenic type. The use of mood stabilizers such as carbamazepine, lamotrigine, sodium valproate, antidepressant drugs (tricyclic and SIZZS) will adjust the types of attitudes to the disease and personality relationships, and require additional analysis.
