Abstract

We explore regularities in comorbid psychiatric and chronic inflammatory disorders from an extension of Irun Cohen's perspective on autoimmune disease, finding that structured psychosocial stress can literally write a distorted image of itself onto child development, resulting in a life course trajectory to characteristic forms of comorbid mind/body dysfunction. Extension of the approach appears possible for schizophrenia and associated conditions, although without such direct relation to structured stress.
