Background. Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder consisting in weight loss caused intentionally by the patient. The condition mainly occurs in adolescent girls. Its core feature is body image disturbances which lead to psychopathological symptoms manifested as intrusive thoughts about weight gain. Material and methods. The aim of the study was to examine body image in the group of 17 girls suffering from anorexia nervosa treated in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Wroclaw. The average age of the sample was 15 years. Body image was analyzed using the self-assessment Body-Esteem Scale (based on Franzoi and Shields, 1984) and a questionnaire (developed by the authors) concerning the patient’s subjective assessment of the size and shape of their body, feelings and thoughts in relation to their own body, satisfaction with their appearance and whether they had any authorities. Results. Descriptive statistics was used to analyze the data. Most of the girls expressed a negative attitude to their own bodies and assessed the size of their silhouettes as much larger than they really are. Noted decreased satisfaction with the appearance of particular parts of the body such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs while the respondents generally expressed a positive attitude to the appearance of their face. Conclusions. The study confirmed distorted body image in girls suffering from anorexia. The vast majority of respondents perceived their bodies bigger than they were, expressed a negative attitude to it and were not pleased with their body weight.
