Hebephrenic schizophrenia

Other Names:
Disorganized type of schizophrenia

Disorganized schizophrenia, or hebephrenia, is a subtype of schizophrenia, although it is not recognized in the latest version of the DSM. The disorder is listed in the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, or ICD-10, where it is called hebephrenic schizophrenia.

Disorganized schizophrenia is thought to be an extreme expression of the disorganization syndrome that has been hypothesized to be one aspect of a three-factor model of symptoms in schizophrenia, the other factors being reality distortion (involving delusions and hallucinations) and psychomotor poverty (lack of speech, lack of spontaneous movement and various aspects of blunting of emotion).
