Case Report 


Early Onset Atypical Anorexia Nervosa Case Associated with Social Media in Pandemic Conditions

Fethiye Kilicaslan, Busra Bakirci.

Abstract
Although anorexia nervosa (AN) and other eating disorders are frequently seen in adolescence or early adulthood, recent studies show that the number of early-onset anorexia nervosa cases is increasing. Increased screen use has been reported in pandemic conditions, especially in school- age and adolescent groups. In this article, a 6-year-old girl who was unable to attend school due to the pandemic and developed AN associated with intensive social media use is discussed. This case report is presented to the clinicians to raise awareness about eating disorders seen in increasing rates in pandemic conditions.

Key words: Anorexia nervosa, child, early onset, eating disorder, pandemic
