Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Finger and palm prints from 46 ICD-9 schizophrenic patients and 43 age and sex matched normal controls were examined independently and blind to diagnosis, by four raters. Seven prints were judged to have very high densities of secondary creases. These abnormal prints were all from the schizophrenic group. Patients with high densities of creases were more severely ill, having had more than five admissions to hospital and higher doses of neuroleptic medication. There was a trend for such patients to have had a complicated obstetric history and an earlier onset of their illness.
