Aspects of bulimia

Abstract

The abnormal craving for food that results in gorging followed by induced vomiting is called bulimia. From its relatively innocent origin as a simple method of controlling weight, the condition may progress to a compulsive, uncontrollable habit that can be life-threatening in its later stages. The author discusses the psychiatric and physical symptoms, and presents a case report and review of the literature.
