    Do you know spelling of this disorder?

    It starts with an M and it pertains to parents who imagine their children are ill and take them to the doctors quite a bit? I need the spelling or approximate spelling for something I am typing.

    Thanks.

    Munchausen by Proxy is when parents/caregivers cause their children to be sick so that they can benefit from the attention given to the sick child. Munchausen Syndrome is when someone fakes or creates their own illness for psychcological benefit.
    Here is more information.
