What is Schizoaffective Disorder ?

Schizoaffective disorder is a condition that is still being closely monitored and studied today.  The disease presents with symptoms of both psychotic and mood disorders, a unique factor that has led many patients in the past to receive an incomplete diagnosis of either one or the other.

Patients dealing with a schizoaffective disorder experience the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia such as hallucinations and delusions along with symptoms of mood disorders such as anxiety, mania, or depression.  Sufferers often have difficulty communicating and may struggle to care for themselves in areas such as personal hygiene.

The mix of these two types of disorders requires intense medical treatment similar to that used for schizophrenia.
