Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v22 n4 p365-70 Oct 2000
Although anorexia nervosa affects over one million males yearly, it is often misdiagnosed or overlooked by mental health and medical practitioners. This article brings the problem to the forefront and outlines features that are unique to these males. Greater recognition of the disorder can lead to more accurate diagnoses and, subsequently, better treatment. (Author/JDM)
