Abstract: After its first description in 1873, anorexia nervosa seems not to have attracted much attention in German-speaking countries. Compared to French and English literature, German publications on the subject were rather scarce in the nineteenth century. This article gives an overview of those writings and an explanation of the lack of interest on the part of German-speaking physicians. Apparently, anorexia nervosa did not appeal to them as a nosological entity distinct from the popular diagnosis of "nervous dyspepsia."
