AbstractWe compared the age at onset of 184 patients with functional psychoses with and without a history of obstetric complications (OCs) as defined by the scale of Lewis et al. (1989). OCs had no significant influence on the age at onset in those patients who had affective psychoses or were non-white. There were 73 white patients with a DSM-III-R diagnosis of schizophrenia. The mean age at onset of those 25 who had a history of at least one definite OC was 2.6 years earlier than that of the 48 patients with no history of OCs. This effect was entirely due to the male patients with histories of OCs who had, on average, a 3.5 years earlier age at onset. There were no gender differences in age at onset among schizophrenics without a history of OCs. We suggest that a subgroup of male patients with a history of OCs is responsible for the earlier age at onset in male compared to female schizophrenics.
