Abstract

The authors conducted a dermatoglyphical study of 278 schizophrenic children and adolescents. The frequency of papillary pattern dysplasia of the hands was 23.7% in boys and 22.8% in girls. These data significantly exceed similar indices in normal children and adolescents (377 cases). A clinico-statistical analysis of 62 patients with dysplasia depicted (as a control, a group of 451 patients not differentiated for dysplasia were studied) an earlier onset of the schizophrenic process mainly with psychopath-like disorders and a continuous progressive development.
