Anorexia nervosa is mainly characterized by body weight loss forced by the patient, fear of gaining weight, disturbance in the way in which one’s body weight or shape is experienced, hormonal disturbances (amenorrhea in women). Although, not included in classification systems, overt motor activity is frequent concomitant sign in anorexia nervosa. This paper presents three case studies of anorexia nervosa patients characterized by altered motor activity. Three of them represent different types of that phenomenon (changing of lifestyle, forced exercises, continuous restlessness). Psychological concepts of etiology, prognosis of motor overactivity phenomenon in anorexia nervosa were discussed.
