    psych Q - 2

    Advertisements



    43 yo woman comes to ER with temp of 101 deg F and a suppurating ulcer in her left shoulder. This is the 3rd such episode for this woman. She has multiple scars on her abdomen. Her PE is otherwise normal. The woman is admitted to the hospital. A couple days later, she was caught holding her thermometer next to a light bulb to heat it up. When confronted, she gets angry and denies of doing such a thing. She signs out of the hospital AMA. What is this woman’s DX?

    a. Malingering
    b. somatoform disorder
    c. borderline personality d/o
    d. factitious disorder
    e. body dismorphic d/o
