Anorexia nervosa (AN) is an eating disorder (ED) identified using DSM-IV criteria. Eating disorders are occurring increasingly earlier in childhood and can lead to a series of oral manifestations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation-between stomatognathic lesions and eating disorders in 80 young patients (76 females and 4 males aged 9-18 years) with restricting or binge-eating/purging AN. The results confirm the close correlation between ED and oral lesions, the most common of which were dental erosion, dentinal hypersensitivity, the extrusion of amalgam restorations and xerostomia. The authors conclude by emphasising the importance of involving dentists in the diagnosis and treatment of ED. © 2004, Editrice Kurtis.
