The purpose was to expand the understanding of schizophrenia development in children and adolescents. An age- and gender-specific analysis of children and adolescents diagnosed with schizophrenia (F20.xx) was performed. The analysis included calculation of incidence rates of schizophrenia, schizophrenia subtypes, and an account of occurrence of any registered psychiatric diagnoses prior to first schizophrenia diagnosis.
