Google doesn't have any references to "body dysmorphism syndrome" (other than CZ's own page!); is that a usual name for the condition? Moreover, the first sentence defines "body dysmorphic disorder," rather than the title phrase. Should the article be moved to body dysmorphic disorder? --Larry Sanger 19:38, 3 April 2007 (CDT)
