Gastric dilatation and perforation is a rare complication in anorexia/bulimia sufferers. We describe a 24 year old female who presented with severe abdominal pain and vomiting, in whom radiographs demonstrated gross gastric dilatation and subsequent perforation. Although gastric perforation is rare, one can anticipate a rising incidence, with the apparent increase in the incidence of bulimia.
