Objectives The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to estimate the association between distinct types of child abuse—sexual (CSA), physical (CPA), and emotional (CEA)—and different eating disorders (EDs). Methods Electronic databases were searched through January 2014. Studies reporting rates of CSA, CPA, and CEA in people with anorexia nervosa (AN), bulimia nervosa (BN), and binge eating disorder (BED), as compared with individuals without EDs, were included. Pooled analyses… 
Childhood maltreatment and eating disorder pathology: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis
TLDR
CM, regardless of type, is associated with the presence of all types of ED and with severity parameters that characterize these illnesses in a dose dependent manner.
Risk factors for eating disorders: an umbrella review of published meta-analyses
TLDR
The most credible evidence indicates that early traumatic and stressful events are risk factors for eating disorders, particularly anorexia nervosa.
Is bullying and teasing associated with eating disorders? A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The meta-analysis showed that compared to healthy controls, those with EDs were twofold to threefold significantly more likely to have been teased about their appearance and bullied prior to onset of their ED.
The association between childhood maltreatment and eating disorder psychopathology: A mixed-model investigation
TLDR
Combining the network analysis approach with the mediation analyses provides for the first time a putative hybrid model, which reveals that all CM types converge towards ED symptoms through emotional abuse and that interoceptive awareness and ineffectiveness mediate these connections in people with ANR and BP symptoms, respectively.
The Impact of Retrospective Childhood Maltreatment on Eating Disorders as Mediated by Food Addiction: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
These results are compatible with a model in which certain types of childhood maltreatment, especially physical neglect, may induce, maintain, and/or exacerbate ED symptoms via FA which may guide future treatments.
Associations between adverse childhood experiences and clinical characteristics of eating disorders
TLDR
A dose-effect relationship characterised the number of CT subtypes and the severity of the clinical features, suggesting a consistent and partly independent association between CT and more severe clinical and functional characteristics in EDs.
The transition from restrictive anorexia nervosa to binging and purging: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
It is highlighted that patients with Anorexia nervosa frequently transition to BPB over time, with a worsening of the clinical picture, and mental health professionals should be aware of the frequent onset of BPB in AN-R and its risk factors.
Sexual function and dysfunction among women with anorexia nervosa: A systematic scoping review.
TLDR
Although measures of sexual function and dysfunction varied markedly across studies, most studies adopted a biopsychosocial framework and future research, using more robust designs and validated outcome measures, is needed to better understand causal pathways between the biological and psychosocial correlates of AN and sexual dysfunction.
Different outcomes, psychopathological features, and comorbidities in patients with eating disorders reporting childhood abuse: A 3‐year follow‐up study
TLDR
Eating disorder patients with childhood abuse represent a group of persons with more complex psychopathological features and a worse long-term outcome, thus requiring specific treatment strategies.
Disordered eating as a repercussion of sexual assault: a consequence to consider
TLDR
This study confirms the link between DE and sexual violence, especially in childhood, leading to severe psychological consequences, and envisaged as a coping strategy accompanying emotional dysregulation due to traumatic events, and should be treated as such.

Sexual abuse and lifetime diagnosis of psychiatric disorders: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A history of sexual abuse is associated with an increased risk of a lifetime diagnosis of multiple psychiatric disorders and associations between sexual abuse and depression, eating disorders, and posttraumatic stress disorder were strengthened by a history of rape.

TLDR
Assessment of the magnitude and consistency of the relationship between child sexual abuse and eating disorders and the methodological factors contributing to the heterogeneity of this relationship revealed a small, significant positive relationship between CSA and ED.
Childhood Abuse and Risk of Eating Disorders in Women
TLDR
The present study provides additional evidence of an association between preadolescent trauma and psychiatric morbidity within the subgroup of women with no depression antecedent to first onset of an eating disorder.
Epidemiology, course, and outcome of eating disorders
TLDR
Applying the DSM-5 criteria effectively reduces the frequency of the residual diagnosis EDNOS, by lowering the threshold for anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, and adding BED as a specified eating disorder.

TLDR
There is evidence that survivors of childhood sexual abuse are significantly at risk of a wide range of medical, psychological, behavioral, and sexual disorders.
The impact of childhood sexual abuse in anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
It is indicated that the prevalence of CSA is high among individuals seeking inpatient treatment for anorexia nervosa and a history of C SA was associated with greater psychiatric disturbance overall and a higher rate of dropout for patients of the binge-purge subtype.
Child sexual abuse and later disordered eating: a New Zealand epidemiological study.
TLDR
Early maturation and paternal overcontrol emerged as risk factors for ED development in women with CSA because these risk factors are particular domains of concern that emanate from experiences of CSA.
Relationship of childhood sexual abuse and eating disorders.
TLDR
It is indicated that childhood sexual abuse is a nonspecific risk factor for bulimia nervosa, particularly when there is psychiatric comorbidity, and this relationship is more strongly associated with bulimic disorders than restricting anorexia.
