ABSTRACT
Anorexia nervosa(AN) is a disorder characterized by disturbance of body image, fear of gaining weight, severe weight loss and, in female, amenorrhea. Compared with normal persons, patients with AN have neuropathic symptoms more frequently. But electrophysiologic abnormalities have rarely been reported. We experienced a case with recurrent neuropathic symptoms after severe weight loss. Further evaluation revealed AN. Electrophysiologic study showed sensorimotor polyneuropathy and focal neuropathy with conduction block. As far as we know, this feature of neuropathy in AN has not been described. We describe unusual feature of neuropathy in our patient with literature review.
Key words: Anorexia nervosa, Polyneuropathy, Focal neuropathy, Nerve conduction study
