Concurrence of Anorexia Nervosa and Gonadal Dysgenesis: A Critical Review With Practical Considerations

Arch Gen Psychiatry. 1973;29(6):834-836. doi:10.1001/archpsyc.1973.04200060106017

Nonetheless, certain similarities between these two syndromes require that the possibility of concurrent gonadal dysgenesis be considered in all cases of anorexia nervosa.
