[Insanity defense in post-traumatic stress disorder].Psychiatr Prax. 2003 Apr; 30(3):169-71.PP
We report the forensic psychiatric evaluation of a 40 year old Iraqi who suffers from a posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She committed multiple non violent shopliftings. We mention criteria for a possible causal relationship between the PTSD and the crimes and discuss, why we affirm a insanity defense in this case.
