I think it quite likely that auditory disorders in schizophrenia stem from inconsistent peripheral auditory input at some stage of development. Simply noting that a couple of pure tone thresholds are normal is worse than useless besause it gives the false impression that peripheral hearing defects have been excluded. At the very least, a full otological history and neuro-otological and clinical audiological examinations are needed.
