Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between bulimia in women with anorexia nervosa and bulimia of a similar severity in normal-weight women and to determine the support for the distinction between these two groups according to DSM-III criteria. Results indicated that bulimic women with anorexia nervosa (N = 59) and bulimic normal-weight women (N = 59) resembled each other on most variables and were more similar to each other than to women with anorexia nervosa who rigidly restricted food intake (N = 59). The results failed to support the diagnostic distinction between bulimia in anorexic women and bulimia of equal severity in normal-weight women.
