A munchausen syndrome case manifesting as a need for intravenous fluid therapy
Serum taktırmadan düzelmeyecek olan bir munchausen sendromu olgusu

İzzet Fidancı [1] , Onur Öztürk [2]


Introduction: In Munchausen Syndrome which is a factitious disorder, the patient can hurt him/herself of another person without regarding a secondary gain.

Case Presentation: We presented a patient who admitted to our Family Health Center for many times, had everlasting complaints of nausea and dyspnea, and thought that she could not continue to live without intravenous transfusion every other day.

Conclusion: When evaluating individuals with incompatible anamnesis, physical, and laboratory findings should be aware of this rare disease. However, the patients should be transferred to the psychiatry clinic for avoiding possible unnecessary interventions.

Giriş: Bir yapay bozukluk olan Munchausen Sendromunda hasta, kendine ya da başkasına ikincil kazanç gözetmeksizin zarar verebilmektedir.

Vaka Sunumu: Aile Hekimkiği Merkezimize çok sayıda başvurusu mevcut, geçmeyen bulantı ve nefes darlığı şikâyeti olan, günaşırı serum taktırmadan yaşamaya devam edemeyeceğini bildiren hastayı sunduk.

Sonuç: Anamnez, fizik ve laboratuar muayenesi uyumsuz olan kişiler değerlendirilirken bu nadir hastalık için uyanık olunmalıdır. Bununla beraber olası gereksiz müdahalelerden kaçınılarak, bu hastaların psikiyatri kliniğine yönlendirilmelidir.
