The association of severe psychotic disorder and parricide has been investigated in many studies, and several authors have described motherkilling as a schizophrenic crime. Our goal is to provide careful examination of psychiatric aspects of matricides that can contribute with important hypotheses for future investigation of its etiological factors. As we argue in more detail, matricide is not schizophrenia specific.
