Background. Tanorexia is a disorder, which turns pleasure of tanning into compulsive obligation to use tanning beds. This addiction has not been yet classified in the DSM-IV or ICD-10, but is described as a disorder which has mental and behavioural characteristics. Objectives. To show the level of knowledge on tanorexia among high school students. Material and methods. The study was conducted using a questionnaire among 164 students (93 girls and 71 boys). Results. 70% of surveyed students knew that it is possible to get addicted to sun-tanning and knew that it is called tanorexia. Students were aware that sun-tanning addiction is as dangerous as a drug addiction, and people addicted to sun-tanning should use professional psychological help. Over 90% of respondents were aware that excessive exposure to sun can cause skin cancer, melanoma, and that it accelerates skin aging process. 38% of respondents used the tanning bed. Conclusions. Obtained results indicate that there is a need to educate young people in the scope of safe protection due to the fact that possessed knowledge of dangers concerning excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation does not translate onto appropriate behaviour. The study also revealed the need of preventive and psychotherapeutic actions (cognitive-behavioural) taking into account the fact that knowledge concerning harmfulness of excessive sun-tanning does not cause the change of the young people's behaviour connected with sun-tanning. © by Wydawnictwo Continuo.

Background. Myocardial infarction is one of the most common causes of death. Knowledge and compliance with a healthy lifestyle has a main impact on the development of cardiovascular diseases. Objectives. Assessment of the patients' awareness and knowledge about healthy eating and nutrition after a heart attack. Material and methods. The survey consisted of 102 people (70 men and 32 women) aged 40-65 years after myocardial infarction. Results. 60% respondents in the survey performed mental work, and more than three-quarters of them spent time in a passive-front of the TV screen and eating sweet and salty snacks (this kind of food is approximately in 9% of the respondents daily diet) and 90% of them smoked cigarettes. 21% of respondents gave up smoking after myocardial infarction. As many as 66% are aware that they eat improperly, however, meat is the main product of the daily diet along with cereal products. The main method of preparing food is frying (46%), and 86% did not restrict salt intake. The study shows that only after the next attack respondents introduced changes in life style. Conclusions. Patients after myocardial infarction have a basic knowledge of proper nutrition, but do not always stick to it in everyday life. © by Wydawnictwo Continuo.

The authors present a case of a 10-month-old girl undergoing diagnostic procedures because of suspicion of pneumonia, without apparent symptoms of heart failure. The child was referred for cardiological evaluation because of enlarged heart silhouette on X-ray examination without radiological markers of lung inflammation. The electrocardiogram showed myocardial ischemia. Echocardiography revealed significantly impaired contractilityof the leftventricle with itsdilatation and origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) arising from the aorta and left coronary artery (LCA), which was draining into the pulmonary artery. The diagnosis of Bland-White-Garland syndrome was confirmed by coronary angiography. The girl underwent surgical repair. There were no early and late postsurgical complications. This case shows how difficult might be the diagnosis of the congenital heart defect in the form of abnormal origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (Bland-White--Garland syndrome) without any signs of heartfailure. © by Wydawnictwo Continuo.
