One thought on “Pre-existing condition

  1. Pedant says:

    Pathological lying (also called pseudologia fantastica and mythomania) is a behavior of habitual or compulsive lying and was first described in the medical literature in 1891 by Anton Delbrück.
    However, despite having been listed as a stand-alone disorder in the third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, it’s no longer regarded as a documented psychiatric disorder but rather a term used to describe what may be a symptom of another disorder such as borderline personality disorder, narcissism or bipolar disorder.
