Abstract OBJECTIVE: Hypoglycemic attack had been reported as one of the medical complications in anorexia nervosa. METHOD: We present a 25-year-old man who was diagnosed earlier with anorexia nervosa, presented with an episode of dissociative state during which he was caught for shoplifting. RESULTS: In the history, he had a few episodes of fainting spells, which are most possibly due to hypoglycemia. There was no evidence to suggest any misdeeds to support that the stealing was intentional. DISCUSSION: Hypoglycemic attack may be common in anorexia nervosa, but this is a rare case with medico-legal implication. (c) 2008 by Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
