Schizophrenia in monozygotic twins

, : Schizophrenia in monozygotic twins. Journal of Heredity 40(6): 165-167

Twins, apparently monozygotic, who had been separated for a considerable length of time, developed schizophrenia at approx. the same age. They have been inmates in a mental institution for 23 yrs. during which time their behavior has been parallel. Their younger brother now shows symptoms of schizophrenia. The evidence suggests the presence of some hereditary mechanism.
