Abstract

We describe the case of a 33-year-old man with Down's syndrome and severe eating disorders. The clinical symptoms, and their difference from those of anorexia nervosa, are discussed. The patient responded well to a strict behavioural programme after long, in-patient treatment and was still well at a 2-year follow-up examination.
