発達的観点からみた神経性食欲不振症の心身医学的研究 第2報 成人期女子例

Komoto, Junko
Following the previous report in which analysis of two female adolescent cases was described, two female adult cases were presented in this report. The summery as follows: 1) Onset of two cases is in their early twenties, coincided with their inter-personal conflicts at work and in the family in law. Morbid condition of each case has been unchanged todate, over the age of fourty; case 1 presents chronic anorexia with bulimia and case 2 presents chronic anorexia without bulimia. 2) There was the evidence of immaturity of heterosexual object-relationship which originated from the disturbed father-daughter interaction, together with the evidence of a disturbed female identification as seen in the adolescent group. 3) Self-starvation of each case appears to have similar psychological meaning as seen in the adolescent cases; retaliation towards the mother of each patient and compensatory aim in the dependancy need. However, keeping a pride in pubertal competitions such as a pursuit in the slim body image may shift to a phobic avoidance of gastro-intestinal dyscomfort. Eventully poor motivation for treatment aimed at tackling the adolescent maturational problems seems to be the core of the disorder.
