Anorexia nervosa is a rare disorder in the elderly but should be thought of in the differential diagnosis of extreme weight loss, especially if there are accompanying psychological features and normal baseline investigations. Psychiatric opinion should be obtained and treatment, although of unproven value, considered, since improvement may increase mobility and reduce morbidity and mortality.
