1/13. bulimia nervosa in hong kong Chinese patients.

    In contrast to the West, bulimic disorders are rarer than anorexia nervosa in hong kong. Four female normal-weight bulimic patients with mostly typical clinical features and conspicuous morbidity are reported. The case histories support the hypothesis that binge-eating is used to regulate unpleasant effect.

2/13. triazolam-induced nocturnal bingeing with amnesia.

    A combination of behavioural and cognitive adverse effects is illustrated in this case report of a recurrent triazolam-induced eating disorder. The co-occurrence of bingeing, irritability and anterograde amnesia is suggestive of a drug-induced kleine-levin syndrome.

3/13. Parotid hypertrophy with bulimia: a report of surgical management.

    Benign hypertrophy of the salivary glands can occur in patients with anorexia nervosa. This enlargement has been related to nutritional deficiencies and bulimia, which is a form of episodic binge eating followed by vomiting. The surgical management of a patient with bulimia and benign bilateral parotid enlargement secondary to bulimia will be discussed. Superficial parotidectomy may be a useful adjunct in managing the cosmetic and psychological aspects of patients with anorexia nervosa and bulimia complicated by massive parotid hypertrophy intractable to medical management.

4/13. Benign parotid enlargement in bulimia.

    Bulimia is an episodic compulsive urge to overeat often followed by recurrent attempts to lose weight by self-induced vomiting. Seven young women with this eating disorder and associated benign bilateral painless parotid enlargement are described. The glandular swelling was generally intermittent, with parotid enlargement usually developing 2 to 6 days after a binge overeating episode had stopped. Several had hypokalemic alkalosis and a moderate elevation in serum amylase levels. None had clinical evidence of pancreatitis, and a parotid gland biopsy in one patient was normal. The clinician should be alerted to the association of benign parotid enlargement with this syndrome.

5/13. Dental sequelae to the binge-purge syndrome (bulimia): report of cases.

    The "thin-is-in" syndrome that obsesses many young people today leads to many severe medical and dental complications. Dental damage that follows the binge-purge episodes is reduced by strict management of oral hygiene; the damage is not totally correctable until the habit is well controlled through proper psychotherapy.

6/13. Bulimia: the binge eating syndrome.

    Bulimia occurs in roughly half of obese and anorexic patients. A recent study found 19% of female and 5% of male college students to be bulimic. Binge eating usually comes to the physician's attention from problems associated with purging measures--diuretics, laxatives, or self-induced postprandial vomiting--used by one out of ten bulimic patients. Continuous vomiting causes parotid enlargement, sore throat, spontaneous regurgitation, and severe electrolyte imbalance. We report a case illustrating the bulimic's distorted body image, review alternative treatment methods, and suggest needed areas of research, particularly those elucidating the relationship between bulimia and affective disorders.

7/13. An adolescent with vomiting and weight loss.

    A 17-year-old female complained of difficulty swallowing and recurrent vomiting of one year duration. She stated that she was trying to gain weight. She felt that a weight at the 5th percentile for age was appropriate for her 70th percentile height. She denied binge eating, self-induced vomiting, concern over abnormal eating, or depressed mood. She had low normal intelligence, long-standing problems with school and peer relationships, and was experiencing significant conflict with her stepfather. The mother noted that her daughter's symptoms had begun at the time her prized horse went lame. physical examination was unremarkable except for thinness. At a two-week follow-up visit, all vomiting had ceased and the patient had gained 1.6 kg. Plans for a barium esophagogram were cancelled and psychiatric consultation was arranged. A six-week followup revealed no vomiting, although weight gain had not progressed. Six months later, the patient was seen with a two-month history of recurrent vomiting. A barium esophagogram revealed achalasia. Pneumatic dilation of the lower esophageal sphincter was successful. Seventeen months after the initial visit the patient was asymptomatic, happy, and seemingly well adjusted.

8/13. Binge eating - therapeutic response to diphenylhydantoin: case report.

    A high incidence of abnormal EEGs and response to anticonvulsant medication has been noted among binge eaters. We report the case of a young women with binge eating episodes and an abnormal EEG who responded to diphenylhydantoin therapy.

9/13. anorexia nervosa at normal body weight!--The abnormal normal weight control syndrome.

    Disgust with "fatness" and a consequent preoccupation with body weight, coupled with an inability to reduce it to or sustain it at the desired low level, characterizes the abnormal normal weight control syndrome. Individuals remain sexually active in a biological sense and often also socially. Indeed their sexual behaviour may be as impulse ridden as is their eating behaviour, which often comprises phases of massive bingeing coupled with vomiting and/or purgation. The syndrome is unlike frank anorexia nervosa in that the latter involves a regression to a position of phobic avoidance of normal body weight and consequent low body weight control with inhibition of both biological and social sexual activity. In abnormal normal weight control there is a strong and sometimes desperate hedonistic and extrovert element that will often not be denied so long as body weight does not get too low. Individuals nevertheless feel desperately "out of control" and insecure beneath their bravura. The syndrome is much more common in females than in males. There is a clinical overlap with anorexia nervosa and obesity in many cases as the disorder evolves. depression, stealing, drug dependence (including alcohol) and acute self-poisoning and self-mutilation are common complications. Clinic cases probably only represent the tip of the iceberg of the much more widespread morbidity within the general population. Like anorexia nervosa and for the same reasons the disorder is probably more common than it used to be.

10/13. Binge eating disorder: response to naltrexone.

    Binge eating disorder (BED) is characterized by a bulimic binge eating pattern without the compensatory behaviors of purging or laxative abuse. It is often associated with obesity. The treatment response characteristics are more like bulimia than other forms of obesity. We have shown the opiate antagonist naltrexone to attenuate bulimia nervosa in controlled clinical trials. We report here a response to naltrexone in a subject with BED similar to that previously reported for the larger population of bulimic subjects. Three consecutive periods of drug, placebo and double dose drug were used, with the order of the first two periods double blind until after the data analysis. Symptoms were reduced in the naltrexone compared to placebo period. Statistical significance was demonstrated using time series analysis for this 'n of one' study. psychotherapy was carried out throughout all periods. naltrexone plus psychotherapy may be more efficient than psychotherapy alone.
