Case report

Development and treatment of anorexia nervosa in patients with Turner syndrome. A case study

T. Callewaert, W. Vandereycken

summary
We describe the case of a girl with Turner syndrome who has also developed anorexia nervosa. According to the available literature, patients with Turner syndrome do not have an increased risk of developing anorexia nervosa. However, if such comorbidity should occur, as it did in our case, then some aspects of treatment will have to be adjusted.
