Abstract

A case of a two and half year old "poor male child" who was subjected to potentially dangerous investigations and therapy due to factitious illness presented by the mother is reported. It took about two years before the problem could be diagnosed. Even though the mother denied the factitious nature of the illness, confronting her with the problem has led to a considerable reduction in medical consultations. The patient was still being followed up at the time of writing this report.
