Anorexia nervosa is regarded a s a typical culture bound syndrome, and its existence is negligible in nonwestern countries due to protective biological and socio-cultural factors. Most of the cases reported from nonwestern countries are atypical in presentation with lack of body image disturbances. Recent studies showed that anorexia nervosa is no more culture bound, in fact it is a "culture change syndrome" due to westernization and no differences are seen in the phenomenology of anorexia nervosa between the two cultures. We report a typical case of anorexia nervosa of binge eating and purging type associated with body dysmorphophobia in an adolescent girl.
