Bulimia nervosa (BN) is often associated with other forms of psychopathology. There is a need to clarify which specific factors of psychopathology are linked with the referral to psychiatric or psychotherapeutic inpatient treatment. This study examined which factors of psychopathology are linked with the referral of BN patients to inpatient treatment while controlling for history of suicide attempts and history of underweight. 126 females with a current diagnosis of BN purging type were assessed with the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV and interviewed about their history of treatment for the BN, history of weight, and history of suicide attempts. Logistic regressions were conducted to examine whether psychiatric comorbidity, suicide attempts, and underweight were associated with inpatient treatment history. Axis I comorbidity in general, but no specific axis I disorder, was associated with inpatient history. Axes II comorbidity, especially Cluster B disorders and to a lesser degree depressive/negativistic personality disorders, was associated with a history of inpatient treatment. History of suicide attempts was also linked with inpatient experience, but history of underweight was not. The results showed that BN patients with specific types of comorbidity are more likely to be hospitalized than others.
