Childhood schizophrenia is seen as an early manifestation of schizophrenia as it is recognized in adults. It is an endogenous disorder of the integration of the total organism, inherited as a predisposition which may remain latent or develop into a clincial illness by decompensation. When this occurs in childhood, it is the result of a combination of inherited tendencies and noxious or traumatic events, intrauterine or paranatal, resulting in a global disorganization in the patterning of all functions, which are seen as embryonic immaturities or maturational lags (Bender 1967).
