Sažetak
Munchausen syndrome is a factitious disorder with predominantly physical signs and symptoms, resulting from the patient’s high motivation for assuming a sick role, without any external incentives or boundaries. We report the case of a young female patient with factitious proteinuria in the nephrotic range and a fairly eventful medical history. After performing many expensive and unnecessary investigations and procedures, the real origin of the proteinuria was determined ; it was found to be caused by the patient carefully adding calibrated egg albumin to her urine samples. This discovery roused suspicions about multiple, non-corroborated conditions from her history (e.g., multiple miscarriages, breast cancer, and thyroid disorders).The diversity of diseases presented by a single Munchausen patient tends to be bizarre, and thus is a challenge for health care providers to diagnose the condition. Teamwork is therefore of the utmost necessity to diagnose Munchausen syndrome.
