Leading-order three-nucleon forces that violate isospin symmetry are calculated in heavy-baryon chiral perturbation theory. The effect of the charge-symmetry-breaking three-nucleon force is investigated in the trinucleon systems using Faddeev calculations. We find that the contribution of this force to the 3He-3H binding-energy difference is given by ΔE3NFCSB ≃ 5 keV.
