Asperger's in the Holmes Family
Altschuler, Eric L.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v43 n9 p2238-2239 Sep 2013
I show that Mycroft Holmes (Sherlock Holmes' brother) is a formally described case of Asperger's syndrome a half century before Asperger's description of the syndrome. Further, given the genetic similarity and links between the brothers stated by Sherlock, this also cinches the same diagnosis for Sherlock.
