Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background: Clues from the epidemiology of schizophrenia have suggested that low developmental vitamin D may be associated with an increased risk of schizophrenia. The aim of this study was to directly examine the association between neonatal vitamin D status and risk of schizophrenia.

Discussion: Both low and high concentrations of neonatal vitamin D are associated with an increased risk of schizophrenia, and it is feasible that this exposure could contribute to nearly a half of all cases in Denmark. In light of the substantial public health implications of this finding, there is an urgent need to further explore the impact of vitamin D status on brain development and later mental health.
