Subdividing the functional psychoses: a family hereditary approach


Scharfetter, Christian (1981). Subdividing the functional psychoses: a family hereditary approach. Psychological Medicine, 11(3):637-640.

Abstract

Family genetic data, based on standardized and independent diagnostic procedures of index and secondary cases, confirmed the dichotomy between schizophrenias and affective disorders. The classical schizophrenic subtypes exhibited a significant tendency towards homotypia among their secondary cases. The genetic evidence did not support the monopolar-bipolar subdivision of affective disorder. Schizo-affective disorders impinged on the clear-cut schizophrenic and affective psychotic disorders and there was no homotypical tendency among the relatives of index cases with this diagnosis
