CRAP !!
The rare syndrome describes people who wander from hospital to hospital
feigning severe diseases that require dramatic emergency care. The
"patient" is always a pathological liar and may even self-mutilate to present symptoms. Once admitted, these people will often get into violent arguments with staff, pushing for painful diagnostic procedures and needless operations. William McLllhoy, a renowned Munchausen's patient, cost the
British health system over $4 million over 50 years with 400 operations at 100 hospitals using 22 aliases.

I got 1, 3, 7 and 8 right. 50% today. Yikes! I did know all about Munchausen's though. Munchausen by proxy is worse IMO though. Its where someone (usually a parent) causes someone else (their kid) to have serious illness or even die so they can get the attention they need.
