Amylophagia and iron deficiency anemia.
Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol 1988; 66(4):448-9OS

Abstract

Iron deficiency anemia may be associated with dietary practices such as amylophagia, which is seen frequently in women of certain ethnic origins. Starch eating may be a direct or indirect cause or symptom of iron deficiency anemia. Orofacial symptoms of amylophagia and iron deficiency anemia are discussed. A case in which anemia and dietary aberration were incidental to the admitting diagnosis is presented.
