Reviews a number of surveys and case reports dealing with eating disorders among Asian girls, the majority of which were conducted in areas of the UK. Makes some comparisons between disorders among white and non‐white girls and, particularly in the case reports, considers factors which may influence the girls’ attitudes towards eating. Suggests that eating disorders among Asian females may be a rising problem and that, given the rising proportion of “minority groups” in the UK, it is one which demands greater investigation.
