dc.description.abstract The synthetic polymers are high-weight molecular organic substances which are formed from one compound (monomer) or by several compounds through chemical processes of polymerisation or polycondensation. Acrylamide, for example, is used in dentistry to harden compositions with high adhesion. Methyl methacrylate (MMK) is the main monomer in obtaining acrylic. It is widely used in households and in different industries – production of organic glasses, lacquers, resins, displays. MMK is often used as a substance in the preparation of various composites, used in dentistry, dental fi llings, etc. MMK can be a health risk factor, both in terms of acute, often occupational exposure and prolonged effects on the human body. While acute exposure to high concentrations MMK produces clinical manifestations of intoxication, which clinical picture and course are well known, the adverse health effects arising from prolonged contact with this substance are very diverse, involve different organs and systems, and some are still poorly studied. It is known for example that MMK, like other polymeric substances and plastics exhibits sensitizing effect in contact with skin and mucous membranes. After exposure to methyl methacrylate, cases of contact dermatitis are described. Is it possible, however, MMK, and substances in which it participates, to create another type of allergic reactions? Responses to this question can provide the case we present. en_US
