The use of electroconvulsive therapy in patients with intractable anorexia nervosa

, : The use of electroconvulsive therapy in patients with intractable anorexia nervosa. International Journal of Eating Disorders 13(2): 195-201

The history of the treatment of anorexia nervosa includes the majority of psycological and somatic therapies devised by psychiatrists, psychologists, and general physicians. We review the history of one of these treatments, electrical convulsive therapy (ECT), and discuss three patients treated with ECT for primary anorexia nervosa. Two had a positive response to this treatment, one did not. She later responded favorably to a course of treatment with fluoxetine.

The thermal reaction of C(60) with five- and six-membered morpholinocycloalkenes in refluxing toluene exclusively gave the [2+2] cycloadducts in high yields. However, a seven-membered homologue sluggishly reacted with C(60) because of the increasi...
