The mental disorder known as Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, from hereon referred to as MSBP is an intriguing phenomenon. Since its discovery in 1951 to the present, MSBP has been surrounded by much controversy in the field of psychology. As will be explained later, many questions regarding this syndrome render it inadequate for trial. It is the contention of this thesis that MSBP, at its current scientific status, is unfit to be introduced as valid evidence into trial. It has to be made clear, however, that this thesis is not an attempt to deny its existence; its focus is solely on its status as competent evidence.
