    GROZNY, December 26 (RIA Novosti) - In the last 24 hours, one girl was hospitalized for a "psychological disorder" that has mainly affected children and teenagers in Chechnya's Shelkovskaya district, a regional official said Monday.

    Muslim Takhayev said the number of patients suffering from the disorder, which a Moscow medical commission concluded Friday was caused by psycho-emotional stress, was 54. Overall, 87 cases have been registered so far.

    Zurab Kikalidze, deputy head of the well-known Serbsky Institute of Forensic Psychiatry, said earlier that the people of the war-torn republic had been living under constant stress in recent years. He called it a "psychological disorder."

    Russia's chief doctor, Gennady Onishchenko, has arrived in the capital of Grozny to study the situation.
