Antisocial personality disorder
Antisocial personality disorder (APD) is identified as a personality disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others that begins in childhood or early adolescence and continues into adulthood.  In addition, essential diagnostic features include an on-going pattern of deceit and manipulation, as well as a documented history of a conduct disorder prior to age 15. 
Antisocial personality disorder falls within the B cluster of personality disorders, along with Borderline personality disorder, Histrionic personality disorder, and Narcissistic personality disorder.
