Dear Linda,

Coprophagia, or feces eating, is not symptomatic of any particular mental or emotional disorder. It is a form of pica, or ingestion of non-nutritive substances. It is more commonly seen in forms of mental retardation or the more severe types of pervasive developmental disorder, but this is not to say that your child displays these conditions.
