ballerinas descent into schizophrenia
"Black Swan" analyzes ballerina's descent into schizophrenia.
Dr. Mark DeAntonio, who is treating Bodhi, said the boy has “something different” than his sister.
“What led us to Bodhi’s diagnosis was she was having auditory and visual hallucinations that were bizarre and morbid,” he said in the documentary. “It was a fantasy world animals lived in.’
“Bodhi’s behaviors and psychiatric issues are consistent with someone who has autism,” said DeAntonio. “He has episodes of severe agitation and self-harm and there is no clear reason why he is falling down and hurting himself, biting himself. It’s most distressing.”
His mother is convinced Bodhi will eventually get a similar diagnosis as Jani. “I believe it will come out later as basically schizophrenia with a lot of autistic traits.”
Childhood schizophrenia is rare, according to psychiatrist Dr. Igor Galynker, director of the Family Center for Bipolar at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City. Fewer than 1 percent of all cases start in childhood.
“Having two children with COS is probably even more rare by an order of magnitude,” said Galynker, who did not treat Jani.
Schizophrenia onset before age 13 is characterized by behavioral and cognitive symptoms that overlap with features of autism spectrum and disruptive behavior disorders, according to a 2007 article in Psychiatric Times.
