This is a case report of a patient with schizophrenic disorder, followed up prospectively over a period of six years through four episodes of illness. Her experience of a focal physical symptom as a consistent prodromal feature of each relapse forms the focus of the report as such a clinical phenomenon has not been recorded before. The possible reason for such presentation and the value of identifying the prodromal symptoms in the control of relapse are discussed.
