  1. Factitious illness by proxy presenting as anorexia and polydipsia by proxy.

    Article - En anglais

    Factitious illness by proxy is a highly pathological form of parent-child relationship.

    To our knowledge no former case of polydipsia by proxy has been published.

    The case of a 2-y-old boy suffering from malnutrition due to displacement of maternal anorexia and polydipsia is presented.

    Child psychiatric evaluation found cognitive delay and psycho-social impairment in the child, as well as a severe mother-child relationship disturbance.

    Psychological assessment showed a personality disorder with depressive and paranoid features in the mother.

    The father was described as a schizoid personality.

    The possible mechanisms of displacement are hypothesized.
