Abstract

To the authors' knowledge this is the first report of a patient with Münchausen's syndrome occurring as comorbidity with anorexia nervosa. The Münchausen's symptoms, together with other self-damaging and addictive behaviors, were used interchangeably to avoid anorexic feelings. The Münchausen's syndrome and self-damaging behavior in anorexia nervosa are discussed.
