Schizophrenia is typically diagnosed in late adolescence and early twenties; however, around 5% of cases happen before 18 and are usually defined as early-onset schizophrenia. The early-onset patients tend to present with increased severity and poor prognosis compared to the onset in adulthood. As a complex disorder, schizophrenia was estimated to have a heritability of 60%-80%, and this analysis aims to test if there is an association between genetic variants and age-at-onset in this disorder.
