I would say that this isn't a typical viewpoint. There are a number of studies looking at brain changes associated with chronic, untreated schizophrenia (i.e. alterations in grey matter, ventricle volume, grey matter reductions, white matter reductions, inflammation, cognitive deficits etc).

A brief psychotic episode, isn't necessarily the same thing as schizophrenia however. Drugs or trauma can induce psychotic episodes that can resolve on their own. Schizophrenia, on the other hand, is usually chronic and relapsing.
