Samantha Kops

Abstract


Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder with an unclear pathogenesis and a difficult treatment course. In this case report, we present the case of a 16-year-old female patient with anorexia nervosa and bradycardia with a challenging hospital course. We then discuss the epidemiology for anorexia nervosa, the symptoms and comorbid medical complications often seen, and finally what ongoing research has been done on this disorder. The goal of this study is to highlight the importance in gaining better understanding of anorexia nervosa to promote development of better ways to treat this patient population.
