DIAZ CASTRILLON, Fernanda  y  CRUZAT MANDICH, Claudia. Anorexia Nervosa: Psychoanalytic reflections on female sexuality and the father figure in a clinical evaluation. Rev. Mex. de trastor. aliment [online]. 2011, vol.2, n.1, pp.1-9. ISSN 2007-1523.

Eating disorders are serious alterations of behavior that constitute an increasingly common problem requiring further research. Psychoanalytical studies of this condition largely develop their explanations around theorizations of the centrality of the mother in the constitution of the subject, while studies that focus on the function of the father generally start from the Oedipal period. This paper seeks to reflect on the place of the father in the subjective constitution of the young female, especially during the pre-Oedipal period. It focuses on the relation that may exist between the absence of the father and the beginning of anorexia nervosa, indicating essential elements through the description of a case. The paper argues that the sexualizing gaze of the father would encourage the integration of the girl's fragmented experiences in the earliest developmental stages, allowing her to organize her subjectivity around her own body and bodily image as female.

Palabras llave : Anorexia nervosa; father; pre-Oedipal period; female sexuality.
