The occurrence of anorectic symptoms during the period of emergence from latency is a common event. Anorexia most often makes its appearance at this time. The more pathological the cognitive impairments, the more likely is the child to become involved in an intransigent form of anorexia. The longer anorexia lasts as a defensive configuration during emergence from latency, the more entrenched and necessary does the reaction become. For this reason, early psychotherapeutic intervention is indicated.
