Are the eating disorders related to obsessive compulsive disorder?

Author information

  • 1University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, PA.


The evidence supporting the idea that the eating disorders of anorexia and bulimia nervosa may be related to obsessive compulsive disorder is reviewed with respect to studies in phenomenology, comorbidity, neurotransmitters, central nervous system functional metabolism, and treatment and outcome. Although no definitive conclusion can be drawn, research generated from the idea has refined our thinking on the eating disorders.
