About This Book

This classic book is a detailed case study of a woman, otherwise intelligent and apparently sane, who was convinced that she had internally a full set of functioning male sex organs. Dr. Robert Stoller's account of this woman's diagnosis and treatment is illustrated by excerpts from the patient-analyst dialogue during her therapy, providing enough detail to be useful to clinicians in training. Originally published in hardcover in 1973, the book is now available in paperback for the first time.

"One of the longest, most minutely detailed, and most fascinating case reports in the psychiatric literature. . . . An extremely original contribution to the study of perversion."—Ethel Spector Person, M.D., from the Foreword

"One of the great clinical case studies. Splitting demonstrates the power of psychoanalytic reasoning in the twentieth century."—Gilbert Herdt, University of Chicago

The late Robert A. Stoller, M.D., was professor of psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles. A world-famous expert on human sexual behavior, he wrote many articles and books, including Observing the Erotic Imagination, Presentations of Gender, Porn: Myths for the Twentieth Century, and, with Ira Levine, Coming Attractions, all published by Yale University Press.
