Reduced body functioning and distress are the two classical symptoms seen in patients with body image disorders, which includes one third of the teens studied.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), is a condition where people are usually engaged with imagining or dreaming about their own shape - a report says.

The researchers studied nearly 208 boys and girls between the age group of 12 and 17 years admitted to a psychiatry hospital and concluded the condition seems to be related with eating disorders, body image concerns and other mental disorders.
