A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is said to be \textit{permutable in $G$}, if $HK = KH$ for every subgroup $K$ of $G$. A result due to Stonehewer asserts that every permutable subgroup is ascendant although the converse is false. In this paper we study some infinite groups whose ascendant subgroups are permutable ($AP$--groups). We show that the structure of radical hyperfinite $AP$--groups behave as that of finite soluble groups in which the relation \textit{to be a permutable subgroup} is transitive ($PT$--groups).

Keywords: radical groups, hyper--$\mathfrak{X}$--groups, $AP$--groups, $PT$--groups
