Abstract

The mechanism of Anorexia Nervosa patients’ (AN) amenorrhea still remains discussed. Some authors attribute it to the weight loss and some others to the emotional disturbances. In fact, we think this mechanism is different at each phase of the illness. It is at the AN state phase, that is to say when the weight loss is maximum, that the mechanism seems the most complex. We tried to specify it in several studies.
