Characterization of patients with both psychotic and mood symptoms, either concurrently or at different points during their illness, has always posed a nosological challenge and this is reflected in the poor reliability, low diagnostic stability, and questionable validity of DSM-IV Schizoaffective Disorder. The clinical reality of the frequent co-occurrence of psychosis and Mood Episodes has also resulted in over-utilization of a diagnostic category that was originally intended to only rarely… Expand
The schizoaffective disorder diagnosis: a conundrum in the clinical setting
The term schizoaffective was introduced to describe the co-occurrence of both psychotic and affective symptoms. Overtime, as the diagnosis schizoaffective dis- order was added to diagnostic manuals,Expand
The schizoaffective disorder diagnosis: a conundrum in the clinical setting
TLDR
It is concluded that a more stringent criterion C for the schizoaffective disorder diagnosis will address an implicit bias in clinical practice and will affect the prevalence of the psychotic disorder diagnoses. Expand
Major Depression with Delusional Prevalence and Fixation in Neurotransmitters
Making a differential diagnosis between schizoaffective disorder with major depressive episode and paranoid schizophrenia is difficult. The patient is at the threshold of neurotic versus psychotic,Expand
Evaluating clinicians' representations of schizoaffective disorder.

This study's findings support the notion that clinicians' conceptualizations of SAD are not entirely congruent with its DSM-5 criteria, which could contribute to diagnostic difficulties. Expand

The structure of psychosis as outlined in the DSM-5 may serve as a stepping-stone towards a more valid classification system, as the authors await new data to redefine psychotic disorders. Expand
The reliability and clinical utility of ICD-11 schizoaffective disorder: A field trial
TLDR
Results suggest the discrepancy in diagnosing schizoaffective disorder is related primarily to the presence of mood symptoms and discrepancies about whether those symptoms are more consistent with schizoAffective disorder or a mood disorder diagnosis. Expand

Schizoaffective disorder: diagnostic issues and future recommendations.
TLDR
Schizoaffective disorder is a prototypic boundary condition that epitomizes the pitfalls of the current categorical classification system and should be omitted in future revisions of DSM, allowing the development of meaningful nomenclature that rests upon further rigorous investigation of differences and similarities between disorders. Expand
Reliability and validity of the DSM-IV diagnostic category of schizoaffective disorder: preliminary data.
TLDR
The better outcome of DSM-IV schizoaffective disorder compared with schizophrenia seems to depend more on the inclusion of the six-month duration and functional impairment criteria than on the different symptomatological patterns of the two conditions. Expand
Twelve-month outcome of patients with DSM-III-R schizoaffective disorder: comparisons to matched patients with bipolar disorder
TLDR
Clinical support of the predictive value of the DSM-III-R criteria for schizoaffective disorder in a naturalistic outcome setting is provided. Expand
Diagnosis in schizophrenia and manic-depressive illness: a reassessment of the specificity of 'schizophrenic' symptoms in the light of current research.
TLDR
It is concluded that most so-called schizophrenic symptoms, taken alone and in cross section, have remarkably little, if any, demonstrated validity in determining diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment response in psychosis. Expand
Congruence of diagnoses 2 years after a first-admission diagnosis of psychosis.
TLDR
The findings support the need for a longitudinally based diagnostic process in incidence samples and changes in diagnosis, particularly to schizophrenia, are mostly attributable to the evolution of the illness. Expand
Logic and justification for dimensional assessment of symptoms and related clinical phenomena in psychosis: Relevance to DSM-5
TLDR
The logic and justification for including dimensional assessment of clinical symptoms in the evaluation of psychosis in the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-5) is reviewed. Expand
Does schizoaffective disorder really exist? A systematic review of the studies that compared schizoaffective disorder with schizophrenia or mood disorders.
TLDR
Present analysis indicated that SAD cannot be interpreted as atypical forms of SCH or MD and does not appear to represent a SCH and MD comorbidity or yet an independent mental disorder. Expand
Ten-year outcome: patients with schizoaffective disorders, schizophrenia, affective disorders and mood-incongruent psychotic symptoms
TLDR
Schizoaffective outcome was better than schizophrenic outcome and poorer than outcome for psychotic affective disorders, and Mood-incongruent psychotic symptoms have negative prognostic implications. Expand

  • W. Maier
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Acta psychiatrica Scandinavica

TLDR
The most recent outcome study saw a less poor outcome in schizoaffective disorders compared with schizophrenia, but it was difficult to distinguish schizoAffective and mood disorders with psychotic symptoms; a progressively worsening intermediate course was reported for both diagnostic groups.
