Hello all. I was wanting to know what you all thought about Munchausen by Proxy (MBP)?
Have any of you ever came across a case of it and if so how did you proceed?
And how can one really tell if it is MBP?
There was a case in Missouri where a mother was accused of MBP. Her child had died of ethylene glycol poisioning.The mother was charged with the child's death. This mother had another child and the doctor's found that the infant had a rare disease, methylmalonic acidemia, which had caused the death of her first child. Needless to say she initiated legal action against the hospital and the State.
I would just like to know your views on this.
