Is conduct disorder common in children with ADHD?

ANSWER

Approximately 30% to 50% of children with ADHD and oppositional defiant disorder may eventually develop conduct disorder, a more serious pattern of anti-social behavior. These children frequently lie or steal and tend to disregard the welfare of others. They risk getting into trouble at school or with the police.
