RAVA, M. Fernanda  and  SILBER, Tomás J.. Bulimia nerviosa (Parte 1): Historia. Definición, epidemiología, cuadro clínico y complicaciones. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2004, vol.102, n.5, pp.353-363. ISSN 0325-0075.

An evidence-based review of bulimia nervosa (Part 1), is provided for practicing pediatricians, alerting to the worrisome epidemiology and proteiform clinical manifestations of this secretive and cyclical disorder. In addition, data are shared that facilitate the detection of this condition through a directed history, recognition of typical signs on physical examination and careful analysis of laboratory findings. Finally, the variety of complications are outlined, as well as the frequent pattern of comorbidity.
