PMID:  6720736     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Obligatory runners and patients with anorexia nervosa share psychologic characteristics. The intensely atheletic person described in this report demonstrated hematologic abnormalities identical to those previously reported in anorexia nervosa. These findings, as well as nonhematologic features of the case, support the contention that obligatory running and anorexia nervosa represent interrelated disorders.
