The author analyses the problem of amenorrhea in anorexic adolescents in the light of multiple points of view, she underlines the biological aspects, linked to the nutritional status, but overall emphasizes the symbolic meanings, referring to a distress in living the body and particularly the sexualized body, which expresses a deeper difficulty in gender identity. The overall problem of body image is considered in the cultural context of a society in which the female body is homologated to mass-media models, dominated by the myth of eternal youth.
Keywords: Amenorrhea; Anorexia; Sexual Body; Gender Identity; Body Image.
