Abstract

A case of exclusive adult lesbianism and manic-depressive illness associated with Turner's syndrome mosaicism is reported. Turner's syndrome women are described as hyperfeminine without problems in gender identity, gender role, or arousal pattern. Adult lesbianism has never previously been reported in these women. The significance of lesbianism in association with Turner's syndrome mosaicism is discussed.
