Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP)

Solano County Child Abuse Defense Lawyer

Munchausen Syndrome is a disorder wherein an individual falsifies, invents or creates symptoms of a physical or mental disorder. The reason behind this lies in the individual’s need for attention and sympathy and to be seen as ill. Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP) is a related disorder wherein a person harms another in order to stage an illness or progressive disease. Most often MSBP is characterized by a parent or guardian falsifying, causing or inventing symptoms of illness in their child. Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy is related to child abuse in that the child may suffer physical and/or emotional injury.
