A sample of 47 Vietnam veterans with the diagnosis of combat‐related Post‐Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was administered the MMPI and MMPI‐2. Pairwise comparisons were performed on the clinical scales, Harris Lingoes subscales, and scales relevant to the assessment of PTSD. Correlational analyses were performed as well. Hit rates of high‐point pairs were compared across the tests. The results suggest a high degree of congruence between tests. Differences were seen on evaluations of some scales between tests that may influence interpretation and treatment.
