Otolaryngologica prevarica: Munchausen's syndrome update and report of a case.

Abstract

Colorful lying is a central feature of Munchausen's, a syndrome well characterized despite an imperfect understanding of its psychiatric aspects. Reported otolaryngologic presentations are infrequent. A classic case is described in detail. A new name, "Otolaryngologica Prevarica," is proposed to maintain awareness of the entity in the specialty. The psychodynamics and the relation to sadomasochism, hysteria and malingering are discussed.
