Abstract

Schizophrenia is a major mental illness with children of affected individuals experiencing multiple challenges, which are often overlooked by professionals. These children are at risk of mental health issues due to multiple reasons including genetic predisposition, poor attachment in relationships and chaotic family environments. We describe an unusual presentation of a child whose mother was suffering from schizophrenia.
