I wanted to figure out in what case of MBP the perpetrator was the father. It wasn’t the easiest search because most cases are the mothers but I finally came across a case study where the abuser was the father. The case was about a newborn with repeated episodes of apnea and seizures requiring home monitoring, multiple hospital admissions, and diagnostic procedures within the first few months of her life. It was always the father that reported symptoms and essentially induced all the abuse upon his daughter. Until the episodes were actually witnessed by the nursing staff, there was suspicion that the father was exaggerating symptoms due to the fact that test results never showed up as positive indicators of permanent damage to the child. In comparison to other cases, the father was the more dominant parent but was not overly friendly to the nurses and became accusatory towards the staff about his daughters condition. He also made the mother out to be the indifferent parent. This is one isolated case, though it was interesting to find that it can be the father and the reasoning or rationale behind it was the same for both sexes.
