A study of 97 cases of schizophrenia in Libya and 100 in Malta. Clinical analyses have showed differences of the content of the delusions and hallucinations as a result of cultural pathoplastic influences. The pattern of delusions and hallucinations was studied. In comparison with the Maltese the Libyan schizophrenics had less described and less systematized productive symptoms.
Keywords: Cross cultural study of productive phenomenology of schizophrenia.
