There is absolutely, definitively, no such syndrome recognize by science and thus no such thing that could be used legally. Some american psychologists have a silly tendency to invent such "syndromes" either to publicize and sell some silly book they've written, or to solve a problem in a particular court case, if the court is stupid enough not to ask them for proper scientific validation of their phoney argument.
