Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego 92161.


The author interviewed 60 women with somatization disorder and 31 women with primary affective disorders who were matched for race, age at interview, and level of education to obtain their childhood sexual development histories. The two groups of women reported similar sexual experiences at similar ages, except that significantly more women with somatization disorder had been molested as children.
