    Abstract:
    High levels of hostility as assessed by a MMPI scale (Ho) have been found associated with increased levels of arteriographically documented coronary atherosclerosis. In this study we examined the relationship between hostility and subsequent health status in a 25-year follow-up of 255 medical students who completed the MMPI while in medical school. High Ho scores were found to be predictive of both clinical coronary disease incidence and total mortality.
