Munchausen Syndrome Diagnosis
Depending on the symptoms, almost any laboratory test can be used to determine if the symptoms result from a true disease process. Test results that are inconsistent or atypical of the claimed illness may be an indication of Munchausen syndrome.
Imaging studies (such as X-rays or scans) may be helpful in diagnosing Munchausen syndrome. Many claimed medical problems, such as tumors, can be easily viewed with imaging tests.
