DSM-IV-TR Casebook Diagnosis of "Brrr"
Bruce is an attractive 6-year-old boy whose mother
brought him to the emergency room because she was frightened that
she could not prevent the child from setting fires, which he had
done several times in the last year and a half. Although he had
so far managed to put out all the fires he set himself, his mother
was afraid that he would set the house afire while she and his sister
were asleep. She complained that he was sneaky about setting the
fires, making it impossible for her to control him or to know how
many fires he had actually set.
