Description

Anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are eating disorders with distinct clinical presentations. Reduced caloric intake, a hallmark of both disorders, is manifested by self-induced starvation in anorexia and by binge eating and gastrointestinal purging in bulimia. Treatment includes nutritional intervention, psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy in either the ambulatory or the hospital setting.
