Abstract

An epidemiologica] survey on anorexia nervosa was performed in Japanese hospitals in 1985 and 1992 using a questionnaire. The reported number of patients with anorexia nervosa was 2391 from 732 institutions. From these data, the tota] number of anorexia nervosa patients treated in 1985 in Japanese hospitals was estimated to be about 3500-4500. In 1992, the reported number of patients with AN was 2247. The total number of AN patients treated in 1992 was estimated to be about 4500-4600, which is a little higher than that in 1985 (3500-4500). The prevalence was 3.6-4.5 per 100 000 among the general population, 6.3-9.7 per 105 among the female population, and 25.2-30.7 per 105 among the 13-29 year-old female population.
