Six recent studies on the outcome of early onset anorexia nervosa (AN) are reviewed. It would appear that the intermediate term outcome of early onset AN is not different from that of later onset AN. No prognostic indicators were identified and effect of treatment is unknown. Early onset AN may be a disabling and chronic disorder for 25% of patients seen at psychiatric clinics.
