Agenesis of the corpus callosum and schizophrenia: a case report

Psychol Med. 1988 May;18(2):341-7. doi: 10.1017/s0033291700007881.

Abstract

Clinical, radiological and neuropsychological findings in the first reported case of schizophrenia with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum are described. Although causal inferences were made difficult by the co-existence of a left frontotemporal cyst and a family history of affective disorder, some theories of the role of callosal dysfunction in schizophrenia require revision in the light of this case.
