Abstract

In the presented case of a female patient initially diagnosed as suffering from anorexia nervosa the gluteno-dependent coeliac disease (diarrhoea chylosa) was eventually recognized. Due to diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties the issue of differential diagnosis of cachexic states, and particularly, of malabsorption syndromes, was dealt with in more detail.
