A classic case of pseudocyesis



Pseudocyesis the appearance of clinical or subclinical signs and symptoms associated with pregnancy when the person is not actually pregnant.

The hallmark sign of pseudocyesis that is common to all cases is that the affected patient is convinced that she is pregnant.

To be diagnosed as true pseudocyesis, the woman must actually believe that she is pregnant. When a woman intentionally and consciously feigns pregnancy, it is termed a SIMULATED pregnancy.
