BACKGROUND: Anorexia nervosa is a disease with high prevalence in adolescents and carries the highest mortality of any psychiatric disorder.
CASE: We present a case of a 17-year-old female presenting to the emergency department with bradycardia that was subsequently diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. We also review the clinical features, diagnosis, complications, and emergency department management of this disease.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with anorexia may present with multiple medical complaints, and it is imperative that the emergency physician be familiar with the syndrome so as to correctly identify and treat patients with this disease.
