In a study of the families of 21 schizotypal patients, we found an increased morbidity risk for schizophrenia compared with that in the families of 21 nonschizotypal patients and 42 controls. The Axis I diagnoses did not influence the distribution of the morbidity risk in the families of the schizotypal patients. If the schizotypal subjects also had other personality disorders, the morbidity risk for schizophrenia among their relatives was lower, although not significantly.
