Abstract
Some clinical characteristics of 40 late-onset paranoid psychotic patients were compaired with those of schizophrenics. There were some similarities between the two groups in terms of sex ratio, clinical symptom characteristics, length of stay in hospital, response to treatment, marital status, education level and occupation. In contrast, age at onset and on admission, duration of illness, frequency of admission, adaptive functioning and numbers of children were different between two groups. These differences, however, may be explained by different age at the first breakdown of each psychotic group. These results suggest that the late-onset paranoid psychoses may be a subtype of schizophrenic disorder.
