Recent findings have suggested that the simultaneous occurrence of neurofibromatosis and childhood psychosis might be more than a coincidence. In this study of 341 children with infantile autism and other types of childhood psychosis seen as inpatients in two university clinics of child psychiatry in a 25-year period, only one case (0.3%) of concomitant occurrence of the disorders was found, which is a frequency no higher than expected by chance.
