In brief: Newer Symptoms

Acute schizophrenia usually refers to the onset of symptoms in a previously healthy person.
This is often a young adult who is beginning to show odd behavior over a relatively short period of time. Such symptoms can include delusions, hallucinations, and disordered thinking (illogical or incoherent speech). This contrasts with "chronic schizophrenia, " which relates to long-term symptom patterns.
