Abstract
Forty-seven cases with anorexia nervosa (including a total population group) and 47 sex-, age-, and school-matched comparison cases were subjected to chromosome analyses in a blind fashion. No major abnormalities were found in any of the cases. Sex chromatin was analysed in buccal smears from the girls. No differences between the anorexia nervosa and the comparison cases were found. It seems that chromosomal/sex chromatin analyses in anorexia nervosa are not warranted.
