Poster Information
Abstract: The following case series documents three females admitted to an in-patient unit. All three females had positive HD gene tests and all three had diverse forensic histories. It is recognised that males with HD have an increased forensic risk (Jensen, 1998) but these three cases highlight that HD may also be a forensic risk factor in females. Summary: The following case series documents three females admitted to an in-patient unit. All three females had positive HD gene tests and all three had diverse forensic histories. It is recognised that males with HD have an increased forensic risk (Jensen, 1998) but these three cases highlight that HD may also be a forensic risk factor in females.
