[en] Factitious disorders are characterized by physical or psychological symptoms that are intentionally produced or feigned in order to assume the sick role. In the particularly severe type presented by Munchausen syndrome, the person's entire life may consist of either trying to get admitted to or staying in hospitals. From the case of a 47 year old patient exhibiting symptoms of neurological aspect associated with psychological complaints, the issue of differential diagnosis of a factitious disorder is addressed. The integration of the reported symptomatology to the subject's personal history seems indispensable to the understanding and the global therapy of the patient.
