A Case Study on Schizophrenia Undifferentiated


INTRODUCTION Schizophrenia (from the Greek roots skhizein ("to split") and phrēn, phren- ("mind")) is a severe mental illness characterized by a variety of symptoms including but not limited to loss of contact with reality. Schizophrenia is not characterized by a changing in personality; it is characterized by a deteriorating personality. Simply stated, schizophrenia is one of the most profoundly disabling illnesses, mental or physical, that the nurse will ever encounter (Keltner, 2007). There are 5 subtypes of schizophrenia naming; paranoid, disorganized, catatonic, undifferentiated, and residual.

Slide 5:

One of the subtypes would be paranoid, prominent hallucinations and delusions are present. Delusion could be persecutory or grandiose. Paranoid has two criteria to meet, first, preoccupation with one one or more delusions or frequent auditory hallucinations. Second, none of the following I prominent: disorganized speech, disorganized or catatonic behavior, or flat affect. Disorganized type will manifest disorganized speech and behavior and flat affect. Person may appear disorganized and unkempt because basic everyday task like dressing oneself can not be accomplished.

Slide 6:

Expression of emotions may also either inappropriate to the content of what the client is saying. There three types of criteria that should be meet; disorganized speech, disorganized behavior and flat or inappropriate affect. Catatonic type is characterized by extreme psychomotor disruption. Client may display substantially reduced movement accompanied by negativism. Additional signs of catatonic type are when a client repeats what others say or mimic their movement. Catatonic has five criteria to meet, first, motor immobility as evidence by catalepsy or stupor

Slide 7:

Excessive motor activity, extreme negativism apparently client is motiveless resistance to all instructions or maintenance of a rigid posture against attempts to be moved or mutism. Peculiarities of voluntary movement as evidence by posturing, stereotyped movements, prominent mannerisms, or prominent grimacing. And also echolalia and echopraxia. Undifferentiated type, is when type a criteria should be met. Residual type a client who has had at least one documented episode of schizophrenia and who presents without prominent positive symptoms of the illness. Negative sympytoms like flat affect and inability to work but has prominent delusions, hallucinations and disorganized thoughts.

Slide 8:

It has 2 criteria, first is the absence of prominent delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, and grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior. There is continuing evidence of the negative symptoms listed in criteria A for schizophrenia.

Slide 9:

Schizophrenia undifferentiated is the type of schizophrenia wherein characteristic symptoms (delusions. Hallucinations, disorganized speech, grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior, and negative symptoms) are present, but criteria for paranoid, catatonic, or disorganized subtypes are not met. Schizophrenia is not a terribly common disease but it can be a serious and chronic one. Worldwide about 1 percent of the population is diagnosed with schizophrenia. About 1.5 million people will be diagnosed with schizophrenia this year around the world. (

Slide 10:

Ninety-five percent (95%) suffer a lifetime; thirty-three percent (33%) of all homeless Americans suffer from schizophrenia; fifty percent (50%) experience serious side effects from medications; and ten percent (10%) kill themselves (Keltner, 2007). According to study done 697,543 out of 86,241,697 of Filipinos or approximately 0.8% are suffering from schizophrenia ( Here in Davao, Dr. Padilla said that the Davao Mental Hospital receives an average of eight to 10 patients a day suffering from schizophrenia, depression and bi-polar illnesses (

Slide 11:

Schizophrenia Ranks among the top 10 causes of disability in developed countries worldwide (World Health Organization, Schizophrenia is a disease that typically begins in early adulthood; between the ages of 15 and 25. Men tend to get develop schizophrenia slightly earlier than women; whereas most males become ill between 16 and 25 years old, most females develop symptoms several years later, and the incidence in women is noticeably higher in women after age 30. The average age of onset is 18 in men and 25 in women. Schizophrenia onset is quite rare for people under 10 years of age, or over 40 years of age (

Slide 12:

The patient, J un Pyo , not his real name, was one of the patient admitted at Davao Mental Hospital due to Schizophrenia Undifferentiated. The group chose Jun Pyo as their subject primarily because his case posed as a very intricate case requiring due understanding and knowledge. Making this case is a good avenue to broaden the proponents’ knowledge about the mental illness involved.


OBJECTIVES General Objective: The main goal of the group is to be able to present an extensive and comprehensive case study of our chosen client that would present a comprehensive discussion of Schizophrenia Undifferentiated to yield important information for the case study.

Slide 39:


Slide 40:

Predisposing Factors Present/ Absent Rationale Justification Family History Present Individuals with schizophrenia seem to inherit a predisposition to the disorder because schizophrenia runs in families, but it is a less partially inherited disease. The first degree relatives have a 10-15% risk of having schizophrenia than chance would allow. Schizophrenia is present in the first degree relative of the patient specifically, his aunt in the mother side according to the patient’s younger brother.

Slide 41:

Neurostructural Anomalies ( Keltner , N. Psychiatric Nursing. Chapter 4.) Absent The theorists have proposed that schizophrenia, is a direct effect of three nuerostructural defects. Ventricular enlargement, brain atrophy and dysfunctional cerebral blood flow. These anatomical anomalies in the brain play a major role in the illness. The patient’s chart did not show any laboratory results to confirm the existence of such anomalies if such are present in the patient.

Slide 42:

Although an amazing amount of resources have been directed at finding the genetic cause of schizophrenia, the results are far from specific. In fact, almost every chromosome has been linked with schizophrenia.

Slide 43:

PRECIPITATING FACTORS PRESENT OR ABSENT RATIONALE JUSTIFICATION Environmental and Interpersonal Stressors Present According to Humanistic-Interactional Theories ,an interactional model for understanding schizophrenia that has received wide acceptance is the stress-vulnerability model, which suggest that people with schizophrenia have a genetically based, biologically mediated vulnerability, to personal, family and environmental stress.( Neuchterlein 1992) Patient has been diagnosed of having schizophrenia. In the family runs the said mental illness. Patient also experience psychobiological stressors causing altered attention and and perception, his motivation and energy. Also he is having difficulty socializing with other people.

Slide 44:

PRECIPITATING FACTORS PRESENT OR ABSENT RATIONALE JUSTIFICATION Disordered Family Communication Present According to Family Theories, disordered Family Communication (the inability to focus on and clearly share and observation or thought) causes schizophrenia only in the presence of a genetic predisposition to the disease. Living with this pattern of family communication during early development is thought to impair the schizophrenic person’s ability to perceive the environment and communicate with others about it ( Miklowits 1994). Communications within the family members were not that effective. Interaction especially between the patient and his father. Brought by the busy schedule of his father they have no time to interact and talk for a while

Slide 45:

Precipitating Factors Present/ Absent Rationale Justification Intake of drugs, substances or chemicals which increase levels of dopamine. Present/Absent Dopamine is known to be the neurotransmitter which is prominently affecting the occurrence of schizophrenia. In patients with schizophrenia, dopamine levels are invariably high. Therefore, intake or use of drugs, substances and chemicals which promote the elevation of dopamine levels in the brain would trigger schizophrenia. Example of these are levodopa , ampethamines and marijuana. Keltner , N. Psychiatric Nursing. Chapter 4 . The patient admitted to take marijuana in 3rd year high school but withdraw his admission afterwards.Our only informant,his brother stated that they dont know that Jun Pyu was taking marijuana.

Slide 46:

Precipitating Factors Present/ Absent Rationale Justification Perinatal Factors Absent Some researchers believe that schizophrenia can be linked to perinatal exposure to influenza, birth during winter, exposure to lead, minor malformations during early gestation, exposure to viruses from house cats and complications of pregnancy, particularly during labor and delivery. Keltner, N. Psychiatric Nursing. Chapter 4. We weren’t able to gather sufficient data to justify if their is any complications during pregnancy and birth. But according to Jun Pyu’s chart his mother delivered via Normal Spontaneous Vaginal Delivery in their house to a healthy baby boy.

Slide 47:

Precipitating Factors Present/ Absent Rationale Justification Developmental Factors Identity vs role confusion Present - His father was busy working. He always got home late at night . He is obliged to care of his siblings instead of playing outside. Developmental factors include the internal reaction of an individual to life stressors or conflicts. Three theorists could be considered here: Meyer, Freud and Erikson. For Meyer, events in early life can cause problems that are as severe as schizophrenia. For Freud, developmental factors include poor ego boundaries, fragile ego, inadequate ego development, superego dominance, regressed or id behavior, - Jun Pyo didn’t enjoy his adolescent years because of being the eldest in the family he was given a role not fit for his age. Results to, role confusion.

Slide 48:

Intimacy vs isolation - Since jun pyo was diagnosed when he was 15 years old , he never experience to be in a romantic relationship. And his family rarely visit him at the hospital. ambivalent relationships and arrested psychosexual development. Furthermore, Erikson believed that eight-stage model of human development starting from Trust Vs. Mistrust highly influences development of the condition. Autonomy vs. s. Shame s accomplishment or failure in the levels affect a person’s developmental aspect. Keltner,N . Psychiatric Nursing. Chapter pp. - It results isolation and he doesn’t feel comfortable with the crowd. And at his age he is not engaged with any relationship. Jun Pyo is emotionally distant to his family.

Ideal Diagnostic Exams :

Ideal Diagnostic Exams 1. PET (positron emission tomography) Scan -with 18F deoxyglucose - shows metabolic activity in a horizontal section of the brain in a control subject. Noninvasive , cross sectional image of regional metabolism is obtained. Color -coded cathode-ray tube representation of the distribution of gamma radiation given off in the collision of electrons in cells with positrons emitted by radionuclides incorporated into metabolic substances.

Slide 51:

2 .CT (computed tomography) Scan - radiography in which a three dimensional image of a body structure is constructed by computer from a series of plane cross-sectional images made along an axis.

Slide 52:

3. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging ) - noninvasive diagnostic technique that produces computerized images of internal body tissues and is based on nuclear magnetic resonance of atoms within the body induced by the application of radio waves.


DIAGNOSIS MULTI-AXIAL SYSTEM OF DIAGNOSIS AXIS I Schizophrenia Undifferentiated AXIS II Mental Retardation- Moderate Schizoid Personality Disorder ( Premorbid ) AXIS III (not applicable) AXIS IV Poverty Role Confusion Inferiority Complex AXIS V 35- (31-40) , some impairment in reality testing and communication. Such as illogical speech at times, flight of ideas, auditory and visual hallucinations as well. He is also aloof and withdraws himself from social activities for he prefers to be alone rather than joined in the crowd.

Slide 54:

B. AXIS I Patient was diagnosed to have Schizophrenia Undifferentiated. Based on his Mental Status Examination, on general appearance he is poorly groomed, his behaviour and psychomotor activities are inappropriate; he had a labile mood, agitated and a blunted affect. With his neurovegetative function, he was suffering from early insomnia. His appetite is increased resulting to weight gain. He has poor attention span. He can’t focus on a single idea and he does not respond properly, apathetic and aloof. With his thought process he has looseness of association, tangentiality and flight of ideas.

Slide 55:

AXIS II Along with the diagnosis stated above, patient was also diagnosed of having Mental Retardation- Moderate. Moderate Mental Retardation has an IQ level of 35-49.Jun Pyo can perform some activities independently but requires supervision. Patient is capable of academic skill. As adult, he may be able to contribute to own support in sheltered workshop. Patient experience some limitation in speech communication. Difficulty adhering to social convention may interfere with peer relationships. Motor development is fair. Patient has a Schizoid type of personality ( Premorbid ). Patient is noted to have small number of friends and was very functional at home. He is known to be silent type.

Slide 56:

AXIS IV The family have low income. His mother don’t have work and his father is out for work all day long. They have no chance to talk on some issues. Being the eldest he was expected to perform the role of his father. He was obligated to take care of his younger brothers. He doesn’t feel comfortable to be in a crowd of people instead he prefers to be alone. AXIS V Jun Pyo scored 35 in the Global Assessment of functioning from the scale of 0-100. It is based from the fact that he has some impairment in reality testing and communication. Such as illogical speech at times, flight of ideas, auditory and visual hallucinations as well. He is also aloof and withdraws himself from social activities for he prefers to be alone rather than joined in the crowd.

Medical Management :

Medical Management

Slide 58:

Therapies: The medical treatments for treating schizophrenia are electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) which is the treatment of mental disorder and especially depression by the application of electric current to the head of a patient. Anesthetized patient that induces unconsciousness and convulsive seizures in the brain and the insulin shock therapy which is an ideal treatment for schizophrenia by insulin in doses sufficient to produce deep coma and also called insulin coma therapy. Psychosurgery were used in cerebral surgery employed in treating psychic symptoms.

Drug study:

Drug study

Ideal Nursing Care plan :

Ideal Nursing Care plan Disturbed Thought Processes Risk for Self Directed Violence High risk for Self Mutilation Imbalanced Nutrition less than Body Requirements Impaired Verbal Communication Risk for Suicide

Actual Nursing Care plan :

Actual Nursing Care plan Disturbed thought process related to disintegration thinking. Alterations in Sensory Perception related to disturbance in thought process as evidenced by auditory and visual hallucinations. Self care deficit: bathing / hygiene related to lack of motivation. Situational low self-esteem related to cognitive impairment Risk for Violence directed to others related to Lack of development of trust and appropriate interpersonal relationships



Slide 64:

GOOD FAIR POOR JUSTIFICATION Onset of the illness ☻ Jun Pyo first experiences the signs and symptoms of schizophrenia when he was 15 years old. The family noticed that Jun Pyo was silent then becomes hostile. Since then people who were close to him also noticed that he has illogical speech and flight of ideas. It was after 5 months,1994 that they decided to admit Jun Pyo to the Davao Mental Hospital.The onset of illness was poor since the family waited that the situation of Jun Pyo worsened and did not immediately seek medical advice.Specially when they noticed his illogical speech and flight of ideas.

Slide 65:

Duration of illness ☻ The client has been diagnosed with schizophrenia undifferentiated moderate 26 years ago since then the patient had several admission in Davao Medical Hospital. His last admission was on May 2009.As we can see, the duration of illness has been very long since it was years ago since he manifested the signs and symptoms of schizophrenia, thus rating him with poor prognosis.

Slide 66:

Precipitating factors ☻ Genetics was one of contributing factor, another was the poverty of their family since his father was the bread winner of the family with the four children to raise. Another factor was peer pressure. Being the eldest of the four siblings he had responsibilities and it led him to ignore his own interest as an adolescent such as he never joined any community activities and only had selected friends. The proponent of this area rated as poor. In his development,Jun Pyo developed mistrust, shame and doubt, guilt, inferiority, role confusion, and isolation which rated him poor.

Slide 67:

Mood and Affect ☻ During the interview, Jun Pyo has appropriate mood and affect therefore rating him with good prognosis. Family Support ☻ For the whole duration of his admission his family only visited him a few times. But now that his mother is admitted in the hospital due to hypertension, no one is visiting him. Specially that his father is busy and his younger brothers are taking turns in taking care of their mother in the hospital. He has fair prognosis since he is not totally abandoned by his family and still visited by his mother when she was not yet admitted in the hospital.

Slide 68:

Willingness to take medications and treatment ☻ Jun Pyo was known to comply to his medications without missing any single dose. He is taking the proper regimen.Because of this, Jun Pyo was rated with good prognosis with the willingness to take the medication and treatment.

Slide 69:

Depressive Features ☻ During the interview, the patient does not show any depressive features. Jun Pyo knew that something is wrong with him and he need medical attention. Even though he is aware that something is wrong with him, he is still not depressed with this fact. Not getting the things he wants won’t make him depress but instead, Jun Pyo becomes hostile. His depressive feature is good since he doesn’t manifest depression.

Slide 70:

Total 3 1 3 Computation : Poor: (3*1)/7 = 3/7 Fair: (1*2)/7 = 2/7 Good: (3*3)/7 = 9/7 Total: 2.00 General Prognosis: 1-1.6 = POOR 1.7-2.3 = FAIR 2.4-3.0 = GOOD

Rationale for Fair Prognosis: :

Rationale for Fair Prognosis: Jun Pyu has a fair prognosis therefore he has small chance, according to the calculation, of recovering from his illness. The onset of illness was 26 years ago. He was not immediately brought to the hospital but they waited 5 months and decided to bring him to the hospital because of illogical speech and flight of ideas. And during his development, he developed mistrust, shame and doubt, guilt, inferiority, role confusion, and isolation which rated him poor.

Slide 72:

He submits himself to the regimen, taking the medications promptly without missing single dose of his medications. Furthermore, during the interview, Jun Pyu has appropriate mood and affect therefore rating him with good prognosis. He had a fair family support. His father is supporting him financially but because of his work he couldn’t visit Jun Pyu . Lastly, the patient does not show any depressive features. Jun Pyu knew that something is wrong with him and he need medical attention. Even though he is aware that something is wrong with him, he is still not depressed with this fact. Not getting the things he wants won’t make him depress but instead, Jun Pyu becomes hostile.
