ABSTRACT The schizophrenia is one of the most invaliding diseases of the human beings, known as “the cancer of Psychiatrics.”  It is a great social challenge due to its incidence, its potential in chronicity and severity, and also the consequences it implies for the family and society in general. The high prevalence of this disease, 1/100 inhabitants, regardless of the social and economic characteristics of the different countries, makes it a factor of great impact owing its social, economic and human repercussion  because it affects the human being during the most productive stage of his life. In 75 % of the cases, the first disease’s symptoms appear between the ages of 16 and 25 years. Because of the disability level it produces, the social and professional life and the studies are affected. In this work, through the study of a case admitted in the Psychiatric Hospital “Antonio Guiteras Holmes”, of Matanzas, the main burdens of this disease in the affective, cognitive and behavioural spheres are shown.
