The article includes a description of a 19-year-old woman diagnosed with Asperger syndrome at the age of 14. It presents the changes in the clinical picture, with specific emphasis on the period of adolescence. They were illustrated with original patient's statements about her problems. What attracts the attention is a peculiar language which is used by the patient - childish, though at the same time marked with grandiose tendencies. This language, with its intellectual, self-centered acumen and unwavering determination, symbolically expresses her limitations and difficulties connected with taking up new developmental tasks in biological, psychological (intrapsychic) and social (interpersonal) areas in the course of adolescence. The specificity of the current, early-adult functioning of the patient is emphasised with her generally good intellectual capacity and well-established disorders in the area of social adaptation. © Psychiatr Psychol Klin 2016.

Soft-templating synthesis of ordered mesoporous carbons under acidic (HCl) conditions was investigated for reproducibility by using a series of eight samples obtained with Lutrol F127 block copolymer as a soft template, and resorcinol and formaldehyde as carbon precursors. Reproducibility was evaluated by analyzing the adsorption properties of the samples prepared via the above route. Low-temperature (-196 °C) nitrogen adsorption isotherms were measured and used to evaluate the basic parameters characterizing the porous structure of the carbonaceous materials; namely, specifi c surface area, total pore volume, micropore and mesopore volumes, micropore and mesopore widths. Errors of the evaluated parameters were estimated in terms of standard statistical analysis, such as standard deviation, arithmetic mean, 0.95 and 0.99 confidence interval for the mean, and coeffi cient of variation. Statistical analysis has shown that soft-templating synthesis under acidic conditions is reproducible when the coeffi cient of variation for most of the parameters is lower than 10%.

Mesoporous carbons were prepared using the hard templating method. Resorcinol with crotonaldehyde and phenol with paraformaldehyde were used as carbon precursors along with colloidal silica as a hard template. The resultant carbons possessed high surface areas exceeding 1500 m2/g for the samples prepared from resorcinol with crotonaldehyde, and approaching 1800 m2/g for those obtained from phenol with paraformaldehyde. All samples exhibited large total pore volumes of about 5 cm3/g and high mesoporosity of about 95%. Pore size distribution functions indicated small amounts of micropores (~1.5 nm) and predominant amounts of mesopores (~30 nm). Scanning electron micrographs proved uniformity of spherical mesopores and their random distribution in the carbon matrix. The well developed porous structure of the mesoporous carbons studied makes them feasible for adsorption and catalytic processes, especially for adsorption of large organic molecules.

Infection with influenza type A virus may cause serious cardiovascular complications, such as myocarditis, heart failure, acute myocardial infarction. Also infection with influenza type AH1N1 may contribute to aggravation of cardiac disorders, i.e. acute coronary syndrome, heart failure, cardiogenic shock, severe ventricular arrythmias. One of the most fatal complication of influenza is pneumonia leading to acute respiratory insufficiency requiring artifitial ventilation. Symptoms of respiratory tract infections dumig inflenza epidemy should always be treated with a high index of suspicion. Early diagnosis and adequate antiviral treatment may prevent those complications. A series of four cases of patients hospitalised in intensive cardiac care unit due to suspected cardiac dyspnea and finally diagnosed as a cardiac disease complicated by influenza pneumonia is presented.

In the protective zone of municipal groundwater intake, in the former industrial district named Białogon, which is the southern part of the city of Kielce, the metal industry has operated for about 200 years. The studies of soils demonstrated elevated levels of trace elements (mostly Zn, Pb, Cu, Cr). However, environmental conditions do not facilitate their leaching and further migration to groundwater. The soil environment is weakly acidic and neutral, while the pH value is even higher (pH 7-8) in deeper carbonate deposits. This is the reason why the pollutants do not migrate and do not worsen the water quality in the wells situated near the municipal groundwater intake. The concentrations of zinc and lead in the polluted soils do not exceed the limit values for agricultural soils, and are as follows: Zn 24.4-1646.0 mg/kg, Pb 12.5-1904.0 mg/kg. The contents of chromium, copper, cadmium, manganese and nickel in the soil samples were lower than the limit values. The contents of the metals in the groundwater do not exceed the amount allowable for drinking water.

Background: Hypertension is an approved cardiovascular risk factor that can modify the course of acute coronary syndrome. The aim of this study is to assess the inhospital course of STEMI in hypertensive patients and to evaluate the impact of hypertension on short-term prognosis. Material and methods: Retrospective analysis of medical records of 1059 patients (67% men) with STEMI was performed. The influence of coexisting hypertension on occurrence of early complications was assessed. Results There were 720 hypertensive patients (68%) in group of patients with STEMI. The occurrence of selected cardiovascular risk factors in the group of patients with hypertension vs normotensive patients was as follows: obesity - 15.4% vs 10% (p = 0.0365); diabetes 24% vs 16%; (p = 0.017), hypercholesterolemia 66% vs 59% (NS), smoking 42% vs 50%, (NS). There were no statistically significant differences in the severity of atherosclerotic lesions in coronary arteries in both groups. Cardiogenic shock occurred in 2.5% of patients with concomitant hypertension and in 5% of normotensive patients (p = 0.04). Hemorrhagic events appeared to be more frequent in group of hypertensive patients 3.6% than in group of patients with normal blood pressure 1.5% (p = 0.0607). Cardiovascular mortality was higher in group of patients without hypertension 15.6% vs 7.5%, (p = 0.0003). Conclusions: 1. Hypertensive patients have more cardiovascular risk factors than patients with normal blood pressure. 2. Hemorrhagic events occurred more frequently in group of patients with hypertension but without statistical significance. 3. Inhospital mortality was much higher in group of normotensive patients with STEMI than in the group of patients with hypertension. Copyright © 2012 Via Medica.

Geastrum melanocephalum (Czerń.) V. J. StanSk fo. melanocephalum is known from 28 localities in Poland, mostly in Pomerania and Wielkopolska. Present paper presents the first locality of G. melanocephalum fo. pilatii in Poland. The fungus has been found in the Krzyżanowice nature reserve in the Nida Landscape Park, Pińczów district, in the Wyżyna Małopolska upland. It was collected in the Adonido-Brachypodietum pinnati plant association. Morphological features of fruitbodies of both forms and their ecological conditions are presented.


development of spatial units. It concerns spaces of different scales and companies of any size. Their ability to adapt to rapidly changing state of economy is expressed by their competing to maintain or improve the level of development, to achieve greater importance in the space, to have access to external benefits. The situation of entrepreneurship is its crucial determinant. It specifies the functions and character of the area and its potential to participate in creating a modern economic system. The economic attractiveness of the territory increases along with the increase in the level of entrepreneurship. This article assesses the entrepreneurship potential and the economic attractiveness of 31 cities in Świȩtokrzyskie Voivodeship, using the following indicators: 1) dynamics of enterprises, 2) the number of natural person entities per 1000 representatives of working-age population, 3) the number of foundations, associations and social organisations per 1000 citizens, 4) the percentage of companies with foreign capital. The set was the basis for the synthetic indicator procedure, which allowed to classify cities according to the two examined characteristics. In the first case, the size of the indicator has comprised all the indicators (in 2013), in the second - the values of their progressive or regressive change in the years 2004-2013, without the indicator for the dynamics of enterprises. Due to the specificity of the net of the cities in the voivodeship, it is necessary to examine entrepreneurship development in the area. The present article is an attempt to fulfill a research gap in this domain. Compared to the voivodeship as a whole, the cities received together above-Average results of the indices of entrepreneurship potential, except for dynamics in business activity. Their huge role in shaping the economic attractiveness of the region was confirmed by the higher progressive changes of: The level of entrepreneurship in the civil society sector and the percentage of foreign partnerships. What remained negative in this relation was a symbolic decrease in attractiveness of private sector location.

Objective: Some authors report that aggressive behaviour in schizophrenia is of heterogeneous sources, for example, aggression may be an impulsive action and even deliberate behaviour designed to intimidate others. Violence and aggressive behaviour may also be associated with psychotic experiences, such as delusions or hallucinations. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between psychotic experiences and the intensiveness of hostility and aggression in patients with paranoid schizophrenia. Material and method: Seventy outpatients (35 men and 35 women) with paranoid schizophrenia were examined. Relevant scales, subscales and indices of the Polish version of Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) were used. Results: The analysis of correlation and the factor analysis revealed a number of statistically significant correlations between the scores of the scales assessing psychotic experiences and those assessing the intensiveness of hostility and aggression. Conclusions: The results of this study confirm the presence of a number of relationships between psychotic experiences and felt hostility and aggression. Psychotic symptoms and indices of aggressiveness created five factors: "psychoticism," "hostility," "psychopathic aggression," "poignancy," "persecutory ideas." Important for the felt hostility and aggressiveness in patients turned out to be experienced anxiety about their mental health because of the sense of the unreality of what is going on and because of the sense of alienation of their own thoughts. Another important factor turned out to be a sense of being wronged by life, misunderstood by others, and the belief that people have a grudge and try to harm. In contrast, characteristics, attitudes and behaviour which are the opposite of paranoid disorders, i.e. faith in people and optimistic attitude towards them, are an important factor for the inhibition of aggression.

Objective: To explore the indirect self-destructiveness syndrome and its manifestations in persons after suicide attempt. Material and methods: The study population consisted of 147 persons (114 women and 33 men) aged 14-33 years. The control group was selected from among persons who did not commit suicide, well-matched in terms of sociodemographic status. To study the indirect self-destructiveness and its manifestations the Polish version of the Chronic Self-Destructiveness Scale (CS-DS) by K. Kelley in Suchańska adaptation was used. Results: Patients after suicide attempts gained significantly higher scores than those who did not commit suicide, in all indices of CS-DS: indirect self-destructiveness global index, A1: Transgression and Risk, A2: Poor Health Maintenance, A3: Personal and Social Neglects, A4: Lack of Planfulness, A5: Helplessness and Passiveness. People after suicide attempts gained significantly higher scores in the active as well as in the passive form of indirect self-destructiveness. Conclusions: The index of indirect self-destructiveness syndrome in patients after suicide attempts is within the upper limit of the average scores. The dominant classes of indirect self-destructive behaviours are (order according to intensity): Helplessness and Passiveness (A5), Transgression and Risk (A1), Poor Health Maintenance (A2). Intensiveness of indirect self-destructiveness as a generalized tendency is higher than in persons without suicide attempts. Intensity of particular categories (classes, manifestations) of indirect self-destructiveness is also higher in them. The intensity of active and passive form in these persons is almost identical, while in persons without suicide attempts, the intensiveness of the active form is much lower than the passive one's. Results of research on indirect self-destructiveness may be useful in the suicidal prevention and in therapeutic work with persons who have attempted suicide.
