Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This paper reports a case of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), major depression, and anorexia nervosa in a Down's syndrome patient.

RESULTS:

Mental retardation and OCD narrowed the patient's available means to control over life. First he became depressed. Perhaps because of insufficient treatment of the depression or in the context of controlling his body and inner life, anorexia nervosa developed.

DISCUSSION:

His clinical presentation, diagnostics, and successful treatment of psychiatric disorders and anorexia nervosa are presented.
