Example text

The issue of whether amenorrhea should be a necessary criterion for the diagnosis of anorexia nervosa remains controversial. RUSSELL (1969) has advocated that amenorrhea be a necessary criterion for diagnosis of anorexia nervosa on the basis of his hypothesis that amenorrhea is caused by a primary disturbance of hypothalamic function: "the full expression of this disturbance is brought about with psychological stress and the mal­ nutrition only perpetuates the amenorrhea of anorexia nervosa". Russell's hypothesis has stimulated much research in the past 15 years and his use of amenorrhea as a criterion for the diagnosis of anorexia has also emphasized a direction of research.
