Traitement hospitalier de l'anorexie mentale : une revue de la littérature

Abstract : Anorexia nervosa, disease that affects young patients is mental illness at the high mortality rate. His hospital care dates back to the nineteenth century with the isolation practices, since it has considerably evolved, codified by recommendations and guidelines. The aim of this study was to define practices that are recommended in terms of hospitalization, and to identify current practices and their effectiveness. For this work we performed a research from the Pubmed database: we analyzed articles published between January 2005 and March 2015 about the treatment of anorexia nervosa. We also relied on French in reference books and on the guidelines of the HAS, APA and NICE. We were able to demonstrate a consistency between the various guidelines that promote multidisciplinary specialized care with possibly seeking care without consent. Hospitalization terms found in the literature are still a majority in France use care contracts with full-time hospitalization for several months and full time at short hospitalizations with faster weight gains in the United States. The psycho-therapeutic treatments of choice are family therapy in adolescents, adults remain the most difficult to treat subgroup, recent work confirmed by other studies found encouraging results in favor of the psychodynamic approach.
