[Social Anxiety in individuals with clinical high-risk state for psychosis].
TLDR
A systematic review of all published studies on social anxiety in the clinical high-risk state (CHR) finds that the feared psychosocial loss of function, which is already present in CHR, seems to be connected not only to the strong SA, but also to the similarly frequent comorbid depressive disorders.
Prevalence of attenuated psychotic symptoms and their relationship with DSM-IV diagnoses in a general psychiatric outpatient clinic.
TLDR
The clinical utility of adding APS to the diagnostic system remains highly questionable, as any patients who clearly met criteria for APS alone in the sample could not be identified.
Comorbid Personality Disorders in Individuals With an At-Risk Mental State for Psychosis: A Meta-Analytic Review
TLDR
A meta-analytic review indicated that the CHR population includes a large subgroup with serious personality pathology, that may present with attenuated psychotic symptoms conjointly with distinct and very heterogeneous personality features.
Validity of the prodromal risk syndrome for first psychosis: findings from the North American Prodrome Longitudinal Study.
TLDR
The strong evidence of diagnostic validity for the prodromal risk syndrome for first psychosis raises the question of its evaluation for inclusion in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Fifth Edition).
Comorbid early psychosis and borderline personality disorder: Conceptualizing clinical overlap, etiology, and treatment.
TLDR
A narrative review of the clinical overlap between BPD and psychosis spectrum symptoms and evidence-based treatments for psychosis and BPD is presented, emphasizing treatments for early presentations of these symptoms and initial research considering treatments for the overlap.

Treatment histories of patients with a syndrome putatively prodromal to schizophrenia.
TLDR

Symptom Assessment in Schizophrenic Prodromal States
TLDR
The Structured Interview for Prodromal Symptoms and the Scale of Prodromaal Symptoms are assessment instruments developed for operationally defining diagnosis and for quantitatively rating symptom severity for patients prodromal for psychosis.
Occurrence and clinical correlates of psychiatric comorbidity in patients with psychotic disorders.
TLDR
It is suggested that psychiatric comorbidity is a relevant phenomenon in psychoses and is likely to negatively affect the phenomenology of psychotic illness.
Detection and management of comorbidity in patients with schizophrenia.
Comorbidity in psychosis at first hospitalization.
TLDR
Comorbidity is common and may be a useful predictor of the outcome of a first episode of psychosis, while those with medical comorbidities had fewer symptoms at discharge.

The psychosis prodrome in adolescent patients viewed through the lens of DSM-IV.
TLDR
Findings reveal frequent mood and anxiety disturbance during the prodromal phase of illness, and the authors consider whether the psychosis prodrome merits designation as a recognized clinical entity.
Substance use disorder and the early course of illness in schizophrenia and affective psychosis.
TLDR
Schizophrenia subjects were more likely than subjects with affective psychosis to report cannabis use during the interval and to meet criteria for cannabis use disorder, and a lifetime history of substance use disorder was associated with worse clinical functioning at 6 months.
Drug abuse in schizophrenic patients: clinical correlates and reasons for use.
TLDR
Schizophrenic patients who abuse drugs may represent a subgroup of patients with better prognoses and less severe clinical characteristics of schizophrenia, but their drug abuse may adversely affect global outcome.
