Patients with a severe eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia, other) are rarely subject of systematic studies. However, many of these patients are in need of in-patient treatment on specialized wards applying interdisciplinary treatment modalities. Updated criteria based on which hospitalisation should occur are provided by the recently issued S3-guideline for the treatment of eating disorders. We retrospectively assessed 26 consecutive patients with a severe eating disorder who were admitted to a psychosomatic/internal medicine university hospital in terms of their somatic, psychological, and social characteristics. Based on the S3-guideline, we conclude that hospitalization of these patients, within a multidisciplinary treatment setting, complies with evidenced-based criteria.
