    Abstract

    He who lights a fire during the day will wet his bed that night. (German and Mexican-Spanish proverb) The wisdom of the proverb makers continues to pique our interest as the subtle inter-relationship among the triad of enuresis, fire-setting, and animal cruelty is observed. Elsewhere the authors have reviewed the literature on these behaviors and new clinical evidence concerning the validity and meaning of this predictor is offered [1]. The present paper is limited to a discussion of sexually aberrant behavior, particularly from a developmental point of view, in six male adolescents who manifest the triad.
