Self-Mutilation and Eating Disorders.
Favazza, Armando R.; And Others
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v19 n4 p352-61 Win 1989
Presents evidence from literature review, patient interviews, responses to Self-Harm Behavior Survey, and case reports that patients with eating disorders are at high risk for self-mutilation. In lieu of dual diagnosis, postulates that combination of self-mutilation, anorexia, bulimia, and other symptoms may be manifestations of impulse control disorder, "deliberate self-harm syndrome."
