Abstract

Eating disorders are not infrequent in adolescents, and associated cardiac arrhythmias (CA) are well described in these patients. However, CA in adult eating disorders have been reported only rarely. We report a case of ventricular fibrillation in a patient presenting with fatigue and a recent history of vomiting.
