Abstract

Amenorrhea is a hallmark sign of anorexia nervosa. Its cause is multifactorial and its resolution necessitates treatment of the underlying eating disorder. The neuroendocrine changes associated with menstrual abnormalities in underweight and weight recovered anorexia nervosa, recent research on osteopenia, and treatment recommendations are addressed.
