Abstract

Hyperphagia (also referred to as polyphagia) is a serious eating disorder defined as an extreme unsatisfied drive to consume food and the most common sign that aperson has hyperphagia is obesity. It can be caused commonly by variety of congenital obesity syndromes and rarely by acquired hypothalamic dysfunction.Here we report a clinical manifestation of a child who was a diagnosed case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and was on maintenance chemotherapy when parents noted her overeating and on evaluation she proved to have central nervous system relapse.
