Hi charlotte's girl. Schizoaffective disorder is an uninterrupted period of illness" where there is Major Depressive, Manic, or Mixed Episode concurrent with symptoms that are met for schizophrenia. During the same period of illness there have been delusions or hallucinations. "Period of illness" is referring to a time period where the person continues to display active or residual symptoms of psychosis. This disorder is often misdiagnosed for a Mood Disorder with psychotic features or Schizophrenia.
