Some risk factors of occupational and non-occupational character of early disorders of cerebral blood supply as formation cerebral aterosclerosis among males in the late period of chronic radiation sickness were analysed. In 66% of cases the disorders were early, because they were detected at the age of 50 years. Trend to the increase in the number of cases with early cerebral aterosclerosis early damages to cerebral blood supply in the examined patients was caused by integrated radiation dose from external gamma-radiation (11%), smoking (2%), age at the time of beginning of work under conditions of contact with risk factors (3%).
