Resumen

Anorexia nervosa has been considered a compulsive obsessive disorder (OCDS). We present a case report of two patients, male and female, suffering from an extremely severe, chronic and refractory anorectic syndrome. Both patients underwent bilateral stereotactic thalamotomy with involvement of the lamella medialis. Follow-up was 4 year and 2 year, respectively. Both patients have regained weight and improved significantly in terms of their obsessive-compulsive symptoms and in their quality of life. The results suggest that anorexia nervosa may be considered in the OCDS.
