Abstract

The authors describe a case of "pseudocide" in which the patient appears to have feigned his own suicide. This case was identified as a result of a routine reconciliation of internally collected suicide data with government-collected mortality data. The authors discuss the evolution of the concept of pseudocide in the clinical literature and consider issues related to deceitful and factitious behaviors and suicide surveillance and measurement.
