In brief: Very poor

Munchausen syndrome is a chronic condition that can be very difficult to treat.
Most people with munchausen syndrome deny they are faking symptoms and will not seek or follow treatment. Even with treatment, it is more realistic to work toward managing the disorder rather than to try curing it.
