CORRAL Z., Sebastián et al. Social cognitive impairment in clinical high risk for psychos. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2019, vol.57, n.1, pp.25-33. ISSN 0717-9227.

Schizophrenia is a severe chronic disease that affects approximately 1 % of the world's population. Those who suffer this disease have serious deficits in social cognition (DSC), deficits that have been observed in first psychotic episode patients and first-degree relatives. The DSC determine the long-term prognosis in this disease and are susceptible to rehabilitation if they are detected early. Only recent studies have characterized deficits of social cognition in subjects with a high risk of developing chronic psychosis. These subjects present a unique opportunity to modify their social insertion and medical prognosis, as they have not been affected by the chronicity of the disease and present a milder symptomatology than in residual stages. This paper aims to make a review about how the DSC are present in schizophrenia from its prodromal stages and about its importance in the early detection of this disease.
