Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: Patients with atypical anorexia nervosa (AN) have many features overlapping with AN in terms of genetic risk, age of onset, psychopathology and prognosis of outcome, although the weight loss may not be a core factor. While brain structural alterations have been reported in AN, there are currently no data regarding atypical AN patients.

METHOD: We investigated brain structure through a voxel-based morphometry analysis in 22 adolescent females newly-diagnosed with atypical AN, and 38 age- and sex-matched healthy controls (HC). ED-related psychopathology, impulsiveness and obsessive-compulsive traits were assessed with the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q), Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11) and Obsessive-compulsive Inventory Revised (OCI-R), respectively. Body mass index (BMI) was also calculated.

RESULTS: Patients and HC differed significantly on BMI (p < .002), EDE-Q total score (p < .000) and OCI-R total score (p < .000). No differences could be detected in grey matter (GM) regional volume between groups.

DISCUSSION: The ED-related cognitions in atypical AN patients would suggest that atypical AN and AN could be part of the same spectrum of restrictive-ED. However, contrary to previous reports in AN, our atypical AN patients did not show any GM volume reduction. The different degree of weight loss might play a role in determining such discrepancy. Alternatively, the preservation of GM volume might indeed differentiate atypical AN from AN.

Abstract [en]

Atypical anorexia nervosa (AAN) has a high incidence in adolescents, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. The weight loss is generally less pronounced than that experienced in full-syndrome anorexia nervosa (AN), but the medical consequences can be as severe. Neuroimaging could improve our knowledge regarding the pathogenesis of eating disorders, however research on adolescents is limited, and no neuroimaging studies have been conducted in AAN. In paper I, we investigated brain structure through a voxel-based morphometry analysis in 22 drug-naïve adolescent females newly-diagnosed with AAN, and 38 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. In Paper II, we investigated white matter microstructural integrity on 25 drug-naïve adolescent patients with AAN and 25 healthy controls, using diffusion tensor imaging with a tract-based spatial statistics approach. No differences in brain structure could be detected, indicating preserved regional grey matter volumes and white matter diffusivity in patients with AAN compared to controls. These findings suggest that previous observations of brain structure alterations in full syndrome AN may constitute state-related consequences of severe underweight. Alternatively, the preservation of brain structure might indeed differentiate AAN from AN. In paper III, we investigated resting-state functional connectivity in 22 drug-naïve adolescent patients with AAN, and 24 healthy controls. We report reduced connectivity in patients in brain areas involved in face-processing and social cognition, while an increased connectivity, correlating with depressive symptoms, was found in areas involved in the multimodal integration of sensory stimuli, aesthetic judgment, and social rejection anxiety. These findings point toward a core role for an altered development of socio-emotional skills in the pathogenesis of AAN. In Paper IV, we investigated neural connectivity underlying visual processing of foods with different caloric content in a sample of 28 adolescent females diagnosed with AAN, and 33 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. Our results showed higher connectivity in patients in pathways related to the integration of sensory input and memory retrieval, in response to food with high caloric content. This, however, was coupled to lower connectivity in salience and attentional networks, and lower connectivity between areas involved in visual food cues processing and appetite regulatory regions. Thus, despite food with high caloric content is associated to greater processing of somatosensory information in patients, it is attributed less salience and engages patients’ attention less than food with low caloric content.
