Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy: Medical Diagnostic Criteria.
Rosenberg, Donna Andrea
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v27 n4 p421-30 Apr 2003
Medical diagnostic criteria for Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (a persistent fabrication by one individual of illness in another) are presented. Since the strength of the known facts may vary from case to case, diagnostic criteria are given for a definitive diagnosis, a possible diagnosis, an inconclusive determination, and the definitely excluded diagnosis.
