The current case report describes the history, symptom progression, and successful treatment of an elderly bulimic male whose presentation was atypical.

RESULTS:

This case underscores the need to consider the presence of an eating disorder regardless of age and gender, when a patient complains of unexplained nausea, abdominal pain, or vomiting.
