Abstract

Background: Robust data from studies of incidence rates in schizophrenia have yielded evidence for a peak in onset at age 22 years in both males and females. An early age of illness onset has been discussed as a more severe (Table Presented) subtype of schizophrenia, characterized by a worse illness course. These observations indicate that age at onset might be a distinct liability marker of schizophrenia possibly linked to the genetic underpinnings of the illness. Studying twin data, we wanted to see whether if an early onset of schizophrenia spectrum disorder in the first diagnosed twin (
