Abstract

Body dysmorphic disorder was identified in 16.4% of anonymous indoor tanners surveyed via the internet, and 57.2% of these respondents were also found to exhibit features of substance-related disorder to ultraviolet radiation. Subjects meeting substance-related disorder criteria were 7.7 times more likely to visit an indoor tanning salon 3 to 7 days per week than those who did not (p = 0.0001). There was no significant association found between body dysmorphic disorder and substance-related disorder in this population.
