Schizophrenia may be associated with violent behavior, especially in the presence of psychotic symptoms, such as delusions and hallucinations, and this violence is most often directed against family members. We present the case of a schizophrenic patient who murdered his mother. Questions about criminal imputability and the importance of prevention and treatment measures in these cases are discussed.
