  • BehaveNet® Clinical Capsule™: DSM-IV: Pyromania - Individuals with this impulse-control disorder recurrently fail to resist impulses to deliberately start fires. They experience fascination with fire, its consequences and related activities. Setting the fires may provide relief or gratification related to tension experienced prior to the act.

  • pyromania  - (Impulse-Control Disorder). Pyromania is an impulse to set fires. Pyromania involves deliberate and purposeful fire setting on at least two occasions. There is typically tension or heightened arousal prior to the act and gratification or relief afterward. The fire setting is not done for monetary gain or an expression of anger, vengeance, personal gain, or psychosis.

  • Pyromania - The pyromaniac sets main deliberate fires and takes enjoyment in watching what others have to do as a result of this. Therefore the pyromaniac is often one of the spectators of the fire he has generated.
