We report a rare case of anorexia nervosa in a 20-year-old woman undergraduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. The patient met the ICD-10 diagnostic criteria for anorexia nervosa. The major reason for presentation was amenorrhea. A significant etiological factor in the patient was her belief that gaining weight was linked to the fact that weight while in a romantic relationship was linked to being sexually active. She received psychotherapy, and her diet was modified on an outpatient basis and she made an significant improvement.
