Abstract

Abstract From a study population of 29 institutionalized chronically psychotic patients, 70% of whom had schizophrenic or schizoaffective disorders, nonpolyuric and polyuric patients had similar diurnal patterns of urine excretion. Patients excreted a larger portion of daily urine volume after noon (55%) than before noon (45%).
