Nineteen DSM-III-R schizophrenic patients and 15 normal subjects, matched for sex and age, were evaluated according to their clinical and corpus callosum structural characteristics. They were evaluated on their size of callosum by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Neither diagnosis nor sex significantly affects corpus callosum indices. Statistical analysis evidentiates a relationship between DSM-III-R axis-V scores and corpus callosum length in schizophrenics, and between age at onset of the illness and corpus callosum length in schizophrenics.

Abstract

Nineteen DSM-III-R schizophrenic patients and 15 normal subjects, matched for sex and age, were evaluated according to their clinical and corpus callosum structural characteristics. They were evaluated on their size of callosum by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Neither diagnosis nor sex significantly affects corpus callosum indices. Statistical analysis evidentiates a relationship between DSM-III-R axis-V scores and corpus callosum length in schizophrenics, and between age at onset of the illness and corpus callosum length in schizophrenics.
