Fabricated or Induced Illnesses

Fabricated or Induced Illness is easiest understood as illness in a child which is fabricated by a parent or person in loco parentis. The child is often presented for medical assessment and care, usually persistently, often resulting in multiple medical procedures. Acute symptoms and signs of illness cease when the child is separated from the perpetrator. Local Safeguarding Children Boards have specific inter-agency procedures which cover this issue.
