The relationship between eating disorders, like Anorexia and Bulimia, and depression are known, although not much discussed in the literature. This article presents a review of the literature concerning the relationship between those two eating disorders and depressive symptoms. The available information and the different explanative hypotheses concerning this subject are discussed. Particular attention is given to the addictive hypothesis, according to which Anorexia and Bulimia are considered the reflection of a dependency problem that is also the cause of depression.

Keywords : Anorexia; bulimia; depression.
