{"ops":[{"insert":"A 22 year old woman is brought in by her boyfriend, who noticed her self-inducing vomiting after a meal.\n\nQuestioning reveals that she consumes rather small meals, skips meals entirely at times, and engages in binge-eating behavior around twice a week, which she regrets later on.\n\nShe also obsessively exercises, spending hours at the gym, and avoids going out with her friends or going to parties, stating that she wishes to avoid \u0027unhealthy\u0027 eating as she fears becoming obese.\n\nThese symptoms date from 9 years ago, at which time she was overweight, and dissatisfied with her body image.\n\nOver the following few months, she lost about 12 kg and became normal in weight, but continued with the above behavior, as she felt that she was not \u0027thin\u0027 enough.\n\nHer medical history is unremarkable, and her menstrual cycles are regular, occurring at 28 day intervals. Her family history is only positive for depressive disorder in the paternal grandmother.\n\nShe only drinks socially, and does not smoke or use recreational drugs.\n"},{"insert":"\n"},{"insert":{"image":"\/storage\/case-images\/pd\/PD-Y-021_en.png"}},{"insert":"\n"}]}
