Abstract

One piece of genetic evidence for the biological distinctness of schizophrenia and bipolar illness is the rarity of monozygotic twin pairs in which one twin suffers from schizophrenia and the other from bipolar disorder. The authors describe a pair of monozygotic mirror-image twins with discordant diagnoses, schizophrenia in one twin and bipolar or schizoaffective disorder in the other.
