Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, PA 15213, USA.


Studies of reproduction among individuals with schizophrenia published in this century are reviewed. Past studies suggesting normalization of reproductive deficits are disputed in view of recent reports of a persistent impairment. The handicap appears to be more significant among men with schizophrenia. The implications of these findings for genetic research in schizophrenia are discussed.
