Outcome of anorexia nervosa in males.

Abstract:

Twenty-seven consecutive male patients suffering from anorexia nervosa were followed-up 2-20 years after presentation; 20 had been treated with an in-patient refeeding/psychotherapy regime. The outcome of the series compared very closely with a similar group of female anorectics: 12 (44%) had a good outcome, stable weight restoration and normal sexual functioning; seven (26%) had an intermediate outcome, and eight (30%) poor (weight more than 15% below normal, and poor or no sexual activity)....
