Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The condition that a part of the digestive tract interposes between the liver and diaphragm has been called Chilaiditi's syndrome. Although it has been reported that this condition had a higher rate of incidence in patients of mental hospitals than in other individuals, there are hardly any enlightening papers of this condition in the domain of psychiatry. Three schizophrenic patients who had this condition are described in this paper. Many factors such as meteorism, the medication of antipsychotic drugs and negative symptoms of schizophrenic patients are considered as risk factors that bring about this condition in them. Psychiatrists should pay more attention to this condition in the chest roentgenograms of patients because this state can possibly develop into more serious conditions such as ileus.
