Clinical experience suggests that bulimia nervosa is a disorder often accompanied by additional psychiatric symptoms. Based on unstructured clinical interviews, 21 additional Axis I and six Axis II diagnoses were assigned to a sample of 30 bulimic women. The Structured Clinic Interview for DSM-III-Patient Version (SCID-P) generated 47 additional Axis I and 78 Axis II diagnoses. There was little agreement across measures in the assessment of mood disturbance. These results not only suggest a greater degree of pathology in bulimic women, but also raise important questions regarding the measurement and conceptualization of DSM-III-R Axis II disorders.
