S. s. s. s. s. s. s. s. s. s. s. s. 001 EARLY DETECTION OF SCHIZOPHRENIA _________________________________________________ 21 Depression in the Early Illness Course as a Prognostic Indicator of the Later Course We studied the further illness course and the predictive efficiency of prodromal symptoms in 115 first illness episodes from the representative subsample of 130 first admissions at six cross-sections over five years after first admission [114]. Patients with schizophrenia who suffered from depressive mood (U14 days) in the early illness course were compared with age- and gender-matched patients without depressive episodes.

First the EARLY DETECTION OF SCHIZOPHRENIA _________________________________________________ 33 literature was skimmed through for symptoms of incipient schizophrenia. A total of 240 symptoms were identified and were included in a questionnaire submitted to experts. Psychiatrists with at least two years work experience at four psychiatric hospitals were asked to rate the relevance of the prodromal and psychotic symptoms listed in incipient schizophrenia. The list of symptoms generated in this way was integrated in the IRAOS in the form of closed questions and supplemented by open questions that the patient or his/her key informant are asked on the symptoms marking the onset of the disorder and on the timepoint of their emergence.

However, these stages of the early course of schizophrenia reconstructed on the basis of group means do not necessarily apply to individual cases. Depressive Symptoms as Prodromal Signs of Schizophrenia Several first-episode studies have consistently reported an extremely high frequency of depressive symptoms in the first psychotic episode: depressive mood or at least two depressive symptoms were found in 70–75% of cases [56,57,113–115]. As shown above, depressive symptoms frequently appear long before the first positive symptom [16,114,116].
