Abstract
To study the development of physical health and some neuromotor functions in anorexia nervosa (AN) 51 individuals (48 females, three males) with a mean AN onset of 14 years, recruited after community screening, were followed prospectively together with 51 age-, sex-, and school-matched individuals without AN (controls). About 10 years after AN onset, all individuals were examined in respect of physical health and neurodevelopment. There were no deaths. Weight and height had normalised, except in three participants with persistent AN. Significantly more participants with AN had a physical complaint/disorder, including hirsutism. This might be a long-term complication in weight restored AN. Dysdiadochokinesis occurred almost exclusively... (More)

Weight and height had normalised, except in three participants with persistent AN. Significantly more participants with AN had a physical complaint/disorder, including hirsutism. This might be a long-term complication in weight restored AN. Dysdiadochokinesis occurred almost exclusively among individuals with former AN in accordance with our previous studies. (Less)
