The authors make the case that the term Munchausen syndrome by proxy should be retired permanently and replaced with a commonsense appreciation that children can be abused by their parents in the medical environment. Physicians who find themselves providing unnecessary and harmful medical care can see the abuse for what it is, another way parents can harm children. This book offers the first detailed and comprehensive description of treatment for this form of child maltreatment. Book jacket.
