Patients of late onset schizophrenia (LOS) (13 subjects), early onset schizophrenia (EOS) current age above 40 years (15 subjects) and early onset schizophrenia (EOS)- current age at or below 40 years (15 subjects) were compared. The LOS group differed from the two EOS groups only in having higher score on the item «SQ»persecutory delusions«SQ». The findings do not support the diagnostic validity of LOS.
