Anorexia is a type of eating disorder characterized by low body weight and body image distortion. People with this condition believe that they are overweight even when they are extremely thin and may diet, fast, or over-exercise to maintain an abnormally low weight.

Treatment for anorexia may involve hospitalization (to restore a healthy weight), psychotherapy, and family therapy.
