Abstract

Abstract Features important in the diagnosis of anorexia nervosa were common in a sample of 100 ballet students. Defining a “case” of anorexia nervosa proved difficult. Follow-up one year later showed that seven girls who were designated “possible cases” had continued to dance and were considerably improved in the their physical status without medical intervention.
