Malingering

Forensic examiner has a important task to find out the fraudulent and feign illness, particularly in the forensic psychiatry setting. Salient point in malingerers is that an external momentum for creating conversant physical and mental symptoms are seen in almost all cases. Most malingerers consciously and with a intention to sidetrack the investigation express subjective and obscure symptoms; when represent symptoms of a definite psychiatric condition, usually claim symptoms sometimes disappeared and evade to assent remedial plans. In the most studies diagnostic tests have been evaluated, however studies on faked psychiatric symptoms slightly implemented up to now. Malingering symptoms as mental disorders, cognitive impairments and clinical syndromes were compared in forensic and non-forensic cases. Female malingerers in this study had simulated medical symptoms about twofold more than male participants (50% vs. 25%) but cognitive deficits had a greater percentage in males [22.7% vs. 6.4%] than their female coequals. In another finding study revealed that, in non-forensic setting participants may fake mental disorders more, but in a forensic setting the most cases may turn to be false, as scientific equipment was being used.
