Abstract

Although the differential diagnosis of hemoptysis is extensive, consideration of a factitious cause is rarely contemplated. Factitious hemoptysis is uncommon in children. We report a dramatic case of factitious hemoptysis in a 12-year-old girl. The features of Munchausen's syndrome are also reviewed.
