I know this is an old thread but for the benefit of future readers, it should be mentioned that a full diagnostic evaluation will include the differential diagnosis of DID and can rule out factitious disorder and malingering. Also brain imaging can distinguish between DID and non-DID.

And yes, some abusing parents do abuse just one child in the family and leave other children alone.
Dx DID older woman married w kids. 0 Una, host + 3, 1, 5. 1 animal. 2 older man. 3 teen girl. 4 girl behind amnesia wall. 5 girl in love. Our thread.

Is your dx DID (or MPD/DDNOS/OSDD)? Join the 2017 survey: Time to diagnosis?
