abstract

  • This single case study demonstrates the effects of antiandrogen treatment on a subject with a very serious sexual deviation and a poor prognosis. It assesses the effects of cyproterone acetate (CPA) on an individual with a serious chronic organic brain syndrome combined with sadistic homosexual pedophilia. Furthermore, this individual had failed to respond to a behavioural treatment program and long-term milieu therapy. Finally, this case study is the first report of CPA differentially affecting penile responses to deviant and non-deviant stimuli.
