The case of a nineteen-year-old man who had suffered for five years from anorexia nervosa was presented by Raymond Poggi. The patient was hospitalized when, during his first year at college, his symptoms interfered not only with his social functioning but also with his academic achievement. A long and stormy course in a secure therapeutic facility did not abate the patient's socially unacceptable, aggressive behavior, and he was discharged from hospital. Subsequent outpatient psychotherapy seems to have helped the patient control his symptoms adequately. The consultant noted that this patient was typical of the group of male patients who suffer from anorexia nervosa. They tend to be well educated, relatively affluent young men who are isolated, lonely, socially peripheral, and sometimes schizoid. They usually wish to be strong, athletic, and vigorous; compulsive exercise is often an important symptom. Their dietary patterns are remarkably similar to those of their female counterparts. They also evidence decrease in libido during the illness, often with the cessation of erections and masturbation. If they have used diet

pills, they may also present with obsessionality, anger, and delusional thinking, which is consistent with the amphetamine abuse. The article contains a comprehensive review of the literature on this condition, and a focused discussion of treatment opinions.
