Anorexia nervosa with ischemic necrosis of the segmental ileum and cecum.

A 41-year-old woman with long-standing anorexia nervosa showed paralytic ileus and serum creatine kinase elevation. Surgical treatment showed necrosis of the segmental ileum and cecum with perforation. She died of septic shock 3 days after the operation. Postmortem examination revealed no occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery or its main branches, and no arteriosclerotic changes. Histological examinations confirmed non-occlusive mesenteric infarction. This case suggested that necrosis of bowels might have been caused by poor blood supply due to severe malnutrition and dehydration for many years, which could be one of the fatal complications of anorexia nervosa.[1]
