Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa in Children
AbstractAnorexia nervosa shows some clinical differences in children as compared to adults, although the aetiology is similar in both age groups. Detection is especially important in children because the self-starvation may affect growth. Most cases can be helped by out-patient family therapy, but some need in-patient treatment, and for this group many have persistent difficulties. Bulimia nervosa is rare in children, and treatment has not been well evaluated.
