An epidemiological study on eating disorders in two high schools in Naples.
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.
