Abstract

Factitious disorder as Munchausen syndrome is a time and money consuming condition that is presented with different signs and symptoms. In emergent situations, it is not a differential diagnosis with high priority, but when it becomes recurrent with atypical symptoms, Factitious disorder and malingering should be considered as well. In this survey, we report an odd and interesting presentation of a factitious disease as a Scorpion sting which misled some professional healthcare providers until the patient finally confessed that she used Turmeric to mimic the signs of a Scorpion sting. She exaggerated her symptoms when asked about the details of the mechanism of the scorpion bite. When encountering an emergent condition, after ruling out the critical conditions especially when the symptom is recurrent, Factitious disorders should be considered. Consultation with a psychiatrist help the team manage the patient properly.
