Abstract

This paper presents a literature review of current research on factitious disorder by proxy (FDP). It identifies common symptoms and management techniques of both the child and caregiver in hopes of aiding primary care practitioners to better recognize the diagnosis and implement treatment. FDP is a subtle and dangerous form of child abuse that can cause significant morbidity and mortality. Knowledge of common symptoms displayed by the child and caregiver can assist in immediate legal and medical intercession, as well as initiation of treatment for all parties involved.
