In brief: No
Difficulties in social situations is one of the criteria for diagnosing pervasive developmental disorder or pdd.
A patient with pdd can not be diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder as this is core symptom of their disorder. However, they do have problems relating in social situations and if that's what you mean by antisocial personality, then, yes.
