The diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder is made when there is a roughly equal proportion of psychotic and affective features in a mental illness.

Broadly this includes schizomanic and schizodepressive disorder.

The features of affect or psychosis must not be sufficient for clear inclusion under either schizophrenia or affective disorder.
