The traditional management of factitious patients with self-inflicted injuries consists of medical/surgical treatment of the physical lesions, followed by psychiatric referral.
The former is assigned to the dermatologist, the surgeon, or the primary care physician.
More often than not, the subsequent psychiatric referral for treatment of the psychiatric disorder underlying and actually causing the self-mutilation fails because of self-mutilators' notorious resistance to psychiatric help.
