Anorexia nervosa is a rare psychological disorder. Epidemiological studies have shown a female to male ratio of 10:1, suggesting, it is predominately seen among females. Anorexia nervosa and related eating disorders are rare in non-Western countries. The association of anorexia nervosa with body dysmorphic disorder and Adjustment disorder indicate a more severe form of illness. This case is rare because here in we present a male anorexic with adjustment disorder and body dysmorphic disorder. To the best of our knowledge, there is no case report in the literature describing a male anorexic patient with co-morbid adjustment disorder and body dysmorphic disorder.
