Illness trajectories across a 2 year time period for three hypothetical individuals with AN exhibiting different illness courses. One individual with an uncomplicated course shows a consistent transition from full relapse to full remission to full recovery. Another individual shows a complicated course marked by partial remission, partial relapse, and partial recovery, followed by a decline to full remission. A third individual shows a complicated course with no recovery marked by intermittent bouts of full relapse punctuated by partial relapse and partial remission. For an analogous depiction of illness trajectory based on actual patients, see Kordy et al., [10]
