GEMPELER RUEDA, Juanita. Eating Disorders in Males: Four Clinical Subtypes. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2006, vol.35, n.3, pp.353-362. ISSN 0034-7450.

Introduction: Eating disorders have been considered as essentially feminine, but they appear in men as well. Their presentation, comorbidities and evolution seem to be very similar to the ones in women. Methods: 21 cases of eating disorders and food phobia are described. Results: Common variables are identified that could be helpful in the characterization of at least four clinical subtypes, in order to facilitate clinical evaluation and treatment. Four clinical subtypes are presented: restrictive, impulsive, avoidant and secondary to other psychopathology. Conclusion: the implications of this outline are discussed.

Palavras-chave : Eating disorders; men; impulsive behavior; compulsive disorder (OCD); major depressive episode (MDE); body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).
