Schizophrenia is a mental illness or a psychosis. To explain in medical terms, psychosis is a stage when a person gradually gets detached from the practical world and mentally gets involved in an imaginary world. There is no fixed age as when one can suffer from this disease but it is common in between 25 to 50 years. At times aged people might also suffer from this mental illness.
Researchers are going all over the world to find the exact cause of schizophrenia but some researchers have also concluded that it might be a result of the imbalance of a hormone called dopamine. The person affected with schizophrenia might show symptoms like paranoia, fearfulness, unnatural and irrelevant talks, might also suffer from some delusions.
