Schizophrenia is a chronic psychiatric condition. Patients with schizophrenia present clinically with psychotic, negative and
cognitive symptoms, which can become evident late in adolescence or in early adulthood. The peak age for presentation is 20 years
in males and 25 years in females. This chronic condition follows a relapsing remitting course, and eventually results in a chronic
state of residual symptoms and functional impairment.
