Am J Dis Child. 1984 Jan;138(1):68-9.

Infant of a pregnancy complicated by anorexia nervosa.


Amenorrhea is a common side effect of anorexia nervosa in women; hence, spontaneous conception is rare. The available English language research has recorded only one previous pregnancy since the syndrome has come to medical attention. I report a case in which a woman with chronic anorexia nervosa did conceive and, despite a somewhat problematic pregnancy, was delivered of a child who at 14 months of age appeared to be normal.
