Malingering and exaggeration Introduction

Malingering is the deliberate simulation or exaggeration of physical or psychiatric symptoms for obvious and understandable gain (e.g. monetary compensation, disabled status, avoidance of criminal prosecution or conscription).

Doctors have been reluctant to diagnose malingering lest it adversely effect the individual's health care, occupation, or legal case. However, recent research indicates that it may not be uncommon, especially inmedicolegal contexts. We here describe some types of malingering seen inpsychiatry, and discuss newer specialist psychological assessment methods which may assist diagnosis.
