    Article - En anglais

    In this study, we investigated the prevalence of full syndrome (FS), partial syndrome (PS) and subclinical syndrome (SCS) eating disorders in a sample of 356 high school girls.

    We identified two cases of anorexia nervosa (0.56%), 14 of bulimia nervosa (3.94%) and one of binge eating disorder (0.28%) according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) - IV.

    Moreover, 17 girls (4.77%) were recognized as PS cases and 49 (13.7%) as SCS cases.

    A follow-up is now ongoing to explore the clinical evolution of partial and subclinical syndromes.
