There is need to explore the underlying mechanisms for excessive winter births among schizophrenic patients. A survey was carried out to find out the phenomenon of seaonality and its impact on schizophrenic incidence and it was found that majority of schizophrenic patients were born in winter season, thus suggesting a role of seasonality as a cuasal or precipitating factor in schizophrenia.
