Abstract: Individuals with eating disorders often have distorted body images. When a person has a large bone structure, he or she may perceive himself/herself as fat. This study was conducted to examine and compare bone structures of patients with eating disorders in inpatient and outpatient settings. This study showed that patients with eating disorders tended to have large bone structures.
