Schizophrenia and beta-thalassemia: a genetic link?

Published in Psychiatry Research. 2008, vol. 158, no. 2, p. 260-1
Abstract This report of two cases in which schizophrenia and beta-thalassemia occurred simultaneously in several family members may suggest that a genetic link exists between these two disorders. A known genetic disease (beta-thalassemia) could help confirm the presence, on the short arm of chromosome 11, of a genetic susceptibility factor for schizophrenia.
