Ego-dystonic heterosexuality: A case study

Michael W Ross

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This study reports a case of a heterosexual male who was not psychotic and expressed a wish for a homosexual orientation. The psychodynamics of this patient are discussed, and the classification of ego-dystonic states discussed. It is concluded that DSM-IH diagnoses should reflect underlying psychological disorders rather than sexual orientation.
