Objective: the aim of this article is to test the French-speaking version of the IDentity and EAting disorders questionnaire (IDEA) (Stanghellini et al., 2012). From a phenomenological perspective, anorexic patients seem to experience difficulties regarding the subjective feeling of their own body (embodiment) and their personal identity, which leads to an inter-subjectivity impairment within social interactions. Following these findings, this study investigated the “lived-body-for-others” concept (Sartre, 1943) in a sample of anorexic female patients. These patients were expected to define themselves mostly through the eyes of others instead of from their own perspective: their Leib (i.e. lived-body) was hypothesized to be more vulnerable than their Körper (i.e. body object). Hypothesis: The main hypothesis assumed that anorexic patients would define themselves mostly through the eyes of others and would tend to experience less bodily sensations than control participants. Significant higher scores for these dimensions in the clinical group compared to the control group were expected. Method: this study included 67 anorexic female patients based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual IV criteria and 246 control female participants. All the participants were French speakers from Belgium, France and Switzerland. Participants had to complete two self-reported questionnaires: The Eating Disorder Inventory 2 (EDI-2) (French version) to evaluate eating disorders and the IDEA (French version translated and adapted by us) to assess the “lived-body-for-others” concept. Mann-Whitney non-parametric tests were used to compare the results of the clinical and the control groups. Conclusion: the outcomes confirmed our hypothesis: anorexic female patients had significantly higher scores compared to the control group concerning both of the questionnaires: EDI-2 and IDEA. Anorexic female patients seemed to have difficulties concerning the way they experience their own body, their personal identity and the perception of other’s gaze. The IDEA is a tool that has been elaborated for the assessment of these issues. It enriches the knowledge relative to the body-self relationship and the first-person perspective, which is essential for a phenomenological approach. However, it still requires further research to be validated and used in clinical practice. [less ▲]

Eating disorders (EDs) are conditions which are becoming more and more widespread among adolescents and they often lead them to seek the opinion of a professional health caregiver, including gynecologists and pediatricians. EDs, and particularly anorexia nervosa (AN), are usually classified as psychological or psychiatric disorders, but they may have major somatic implications and complications as osteoporosis, nutritional deficiencies, cerebral atrophy, cardiac and metabolic disorders. A key issue in the management is prevention or reduction of both the serious somatic consequences and the important mental health consequences (e.g. depression, psychosocial withdrawal, phobia and suicide), integrating different perspectives (psychological or psychiatric - individual and familial -, genetic, nutritional, pediatric, gynecological). Adolescence is a critical period for the onset of EDs though they may also involve younger children. In this case, the consequences on the development (height, weight, puberty) can also be significant. In this review, we will focus on eating disorders in adolescent girls with an emphasis on AN. We describe variations in ED characteristics and their management depending on age at occurrence. A possible ED should be considered by pediatricians consulted about delayed female growth and puberty as well as gynecologists in patients with primary or secondary amenorrhea or infertility.

During the past decades, children migrating for international adoption have increased in number, creating an original condition of dramatic environmental change during development. In several countries, cohorts of these subjects have been shown to experience a global advancement in age at the onset of puberty, and sexual precocity is seen more frequently than in other conditions. Such early or precocious development has been assessed in relatively small cohorts or individual patients using well-defined physical indicators in comparison with updated references in the foster country. Family and adolescent evaluation of pubertal timing could allow for the study of large series of internationally adopted subjects. Also, this type of assessment integrates the physical changes of puberty with the adolescent changes in psychological and social functioning. The pathophysiological mechanisms leading to advancement of puberty in migrating children are still unclear and possibly involve several factors. In the present paper, we hypothesize that the sexual precocity in children migrating for international adoption could represent a developmentally programmed disorder resulting from cumulative anomalies in early remodeling of the central nervous system by communicational, social, nutritional, and hormonal inputs. There is some evidence that the deviations in those inputs can result in altered brain structure, particularly in the limbic system. We discuss the possible association with further disorders of developmental functions, such as cognitive, psychosocial, and sexual maturation. Along this hypothesis, some forms of idiopathic sexual precocity could result from dysfunction of one or several of the environmental programming factors, while other forms may involve predominantly genetic or familial factors.

Pancreatic injury after trauma can occur in the child as an isolated lesion after a minor injury. The consequences can be severe in the absence of prompt diagnosis and treatment. Determination of mechanism of injury, clinical examination, blood amylase levels and abdominal CT-scan are first line steps for the evaluation of the injury. ERCP and MRI can be useful tools to further document injury to the pancreatic duct. In the absence of duct injury, conservative treatment can be applied. For the other cases, the treatment is surgical although newer techniques may be applied in selected cases. [less ▲]
