PMID:  18761317     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present the case of a patient who was recently convicted for exhibitionism whose clinical assessment suggested undiagnosed Huntington's disease. We summarise the clinical characteristics, the genetics involved and the diagnostic difficulties which can be encountered. Finally, we discuss the implications of this diagnosis in forensic medicine.
