Abstract

A long term follow up (mean 7.2 years) of 30 children with anorexia nervosa (mean age at onset 11.7 years) was carried out. The outcome was good in only 18 (60%), 10 children remaining moderately to severely impaired and two died. Poor prognostic factors included early age at onset (less than 11 years), depression during the illness, disturbed family life and one parent families, and those in which one or both parents had been married before.
