Title: Dissociation : Vol. 4, No. 4, p. 200-204 : On the misdiagnosis of multiple personality disorder
Author: Chu, James A.
Abstract: In many mental health settings, there has been an increasing awareness that multiple personality disorder (MPD) is far from rare. However, along with this awareness has come an increased incidence of the misdiagnosis of MPD. The misdiagnosis of MPD (i.e., false positive diagnosis of MPD) has been seen in three forms: other dissociative disorders, non-dissociative disorders, and malingering or factitious disorders misdiagnosed as MPD. The accurate differential diagnosis of MPD can be challenging, but has important clinical implications.
