ABSTRACT
Presents a study on the examination of schizophrenic patients on the variations in nailfold capillary bed visualization. Comparison of the results with previous reports on nailfold capillaries suggests attention has been focused on the morphology of capillary loops in the terminal row; Repetition of observations and photographic recording of nailfold capillaries; Importance of further studies to determine the significance of the frequently observed, clearly visible subpapillary plexus and the factors responsible for its large variations in the nailfold of certain schizophrenic patients.
