Sibling incest has seldom been researched and thus remains poorly understood. The authors review a case and discuss it in the context of the recent literature on incest. The case report they present demonstrates the complexity of individual and family dynamics leading to incest and illustrates the need for caution in making generalizations about incestuous families. The authors recommend that evaluators and treaters of incestuous families pay close attention to the specific dynamics of any given case and avoid assuming that common scenarios or traits of participants alone can adequately explain the incest.
