Abstract

The relationships between depression, anxiety and positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia were examined in a study of 95 schizophrenic patients who were receiving out-patient care. Various measures of depression and anxiety showed a pattern of interrelationships which suggested that they were measuring a general state of dysphoria rather than separate dimensions of anxiety and depression. Dysphoria was found to be more reliably related to level of positive symptomatology than to negative symptoms.
