Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Louisville School of Medicine.

Abstract

Although anorexia nervosa is usually considered a disorder of young women and girls, 5% to 10% of cases occur in men and boys. Onset can range from prepubertal years to adulthood. The unique conflicts that may lead to anorexia nervosa in males must be considered when treating these patients.
