Family history and obstetric complications in deficit and non-deficit schizophrenia: preliminary results

  • S Dollfus (a1), S Germain-Robin (a2), B Chabot (a1), P Brazo (a1), P Delamillieure (a1), S Langlois (a2), A van der Elst (a2), D Campion (a2) and M Petit (a2)...

Summary

The aim of this study was to test that deficit (D) schizophrenic patients as defined by Carpenter et al had a higher prevalence of family history of schizophrenia but less obstetric complications than non-deficit (ND) patients. A lower rate of obstetric complications but an excess of schizophrenic and a higher rate of alcoholism family antecedents in 18 D patients compared to 23 ND patients were found. These results could suggest that there is a different weight of genetic and early environmental factors in D and ND patients.
