This report details a 19-year-old TS patient who presented with OCD since the age of 13, comorbid with several other psychiatric pathologies, including bipolar I disorder, anorexia nervosa and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It will also discuss those comorbidities in relation to the patient's genetic syndrome and mention the contribution it makes to her multiple disabilities diagnosis as well as her patient-specific therapy. Patients with TS often present to treating physicians for overwhelming somatic complaints, likely resulting in poor recognition of psychiatric disorders. Thus, OCD may be significantl...

Abstract Anhedonia, the inability to experience pleasure, is associated with depression, schizophrenia and also anorexia nervosa (AN). However, it remains unanswered whether anhedonic symptoms in AN are undernutrition‐dependent depressive symptoms or a core feature of AN. Therefore, we aim at investigating the trajectory of anhedonic and depressive symptoms over the course of the disorder. Self‐reported symptoms were collected in 35 nonmedicated acutely ill, 33 long‐term recovered patients and 62 healthy females. The majority of the acutely ill (n = 24) were followed up after>15% weight restoration (...

Conclusions Findings show that neuronal processing in response to pictures of one's own desired body state is different in xenomelia compared with controls and might represent a neuronal substrate of the xenomelia complaints that become behaviourally relevant, at least when rating the pleasantness and attractiveness of one's own body. Our findings converge with structural peculiarities reported in xenomelia and partially overlap in task and results with that of anorexia and transgender research.

AbstractRecent FindingsEating disorders (ED) affect energy intake modifying body fat depots. Prior evidence suggests that binge eating disorder (BED) and bulimia nervosa (BN) could increase the risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D), while anorexia nervosa (AN) could reduce it.Purpose of ReviewA systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted to evaluate if ED are risk factors for T2D.SummaryTen studies were selected out of 1057 screened. Meta-analysis of six studies with T2D as outcome is reported. Among cross-sectional studies, both BED (OR 3.69, 95% CI [1.12 –12.12]) and BN (OR 3.45 [1.92–6.1]) increased the risk...

We examined whether changes in CART expression from the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA) and arcuate nucleus (ARC) could participate in food‐avoidance of DIA rats. DIA and forced‐food restricted (FFR) animals reduced their body weight and food intake. FFR rats had a down‐regulation of their HPT axis (reduced serum TH and TSH content), whereas DIA animals had reduced TH but increased TSH levels. CART mRNA expression in the ARC decreased similarly between experimental groups and diminished in anterior, medial PVN and in LHA of FFR animals, whereas DIA animals showed unchanged levels. This impaired CART mRNA expression i...

We report a case in which combination therapy with albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel) and gemcitabine converted unresectable pancreatic cancer with peritoneal metastases into resectable disease. The patient was a 71-year-old woman with anorexia. Enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed an atrophic pancreatic body and tail, dilated main pancreatic duct, peritoneal dissemination, portal vein stricture, bile duct stricture and wall thickening, and blockage of the right ureter. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer with peritoneal metastases. Curative resection was initially impossible. Combination therapy ...

A heightened sensitivity to social rejection might contribute towards the interpersonal difficulties and symptoms that characterise Anorexia Nervosa (AN). This paper examines the effect of Cognitive Bias Modification for Interpretation biases (CBM-I) training on a negative interpretation bias for ambiguous social scenarios that involve the risk of rejection and eating behaviour.
