Aging individuals can develop generalized, exquisitely-pruritic, eczematous eruptions of uncertain etiology that can be therapeutically-refractory and life-altering. Limited information exists in the literature to guide clinicians in the diagnosis and management of such patients. It is suggested that in approximately 40% of such patients a known cause for their chronic pruritic eruptions cannot be identified. In this report we will refer to this subgroup of patients as having idiopathic chronic eczematous eruption of aging (CEEA)...

Obesity has been associated with atopic dermatitis (AD); however, the results have been conflicting. Our aim was to provide an update on current knowledge from observational studies addressing the possible association between obesity and AD. Systematic literature review was performed by identifying studies addressing a possible link between AD and overweight/obesity from PubMed, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines...

Atopic dermatitis (DA) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. Its incidence and prevalence is increasing, especially in industrialized countries. The prevalence of AD in adults is estimated at 1-3 % of the general population and can present as adult-onset AD, or as infantile/childhood AD that persists, or recurs in adulthood. There are no specific diagnostic criteria for adult AD. Diagnosis may be also complicated by the fact that the clinical manifestations sometimes differ from pediatric AD. Moreover, many recent studies have identified adult AD as a systemic disease...

BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is characterized by skin barrier dysfunction. Notably, a high number of nano-scale protrusions on the surface of corneocytes, which can be expressed by the Dermal Texture Index (DTI), were recently associated with paediatric AD, loss-of-function mutations in filaggrin gene (FLG) and reduced levels of natural moisturizing factors (NMF). No study has so far examined the association between these parameters and monomeric filaggrin levels in adults. OBJECTIVE: To determine DTI, monomeric filaggrin and NMF in healthy controls and a group of patients with controlled dermatitis...

BACKGROUND: The identification of children who will have persistent asthma has become a focus of recent research. The aim of this study was to assess whether impulse oscillometry (IOS) has a diagnostic value to predict modified API (asthma predictive index) in pre-schoolers with recurrent wheezing. METHODS: Pre-school children aged 3-6 years with recurrent wheezing were enrolled. The study population was divided into two groups based on mAPI criteria. Lung function was assessed by IOS...

BACKGROUND: The atopic march describes the progression from atopic dermatitis during infancy to asthma and allergic rhinitis in later childhood. In a Canadian birth cohort we investigated whether concomitant allergic sensitization enhances subsequent development of these allergic diseases at age 3 years. METHODS: Children completed skin prick testing at age 1 year. Children were considered sensitized if they produced a wheal 2 mm or larger than that elicited by the negative control to any of 10 inhalant or food allergens...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) has no definitive diagnostic test and has a large range of phenotypes, making it a difficult disease to assess and define. However, an agreed-upon definition of AD is important for clinical trials, population-based studies, and clinical practice. Several diagnostic criteria systems have been proposed to fill these needs, with none considered the gold standard. To further aid in standardized assessment of AD patients, numerous disease severity and quality of life measurement tools have been proposed...

Atopic dermatitis (AD), also known as atopic eczema, is a chronic relapsing inflammatory skin condition. Incidence of AD has increased 2- to 3-fold in industrialized nations, impacting approximately 15% to 20% of children and 1% to 3% of adults worldwide. AD has a wide-ranging impact on a patient's quality of life and the burden from direct and indirect costs (approximately $37.7 billion in out-of-pocket costs) is shared by the families and caregivers of patients with AD. This article reviews the epidemiology, burden of disease, pathophysiology, and diagnostic criteria important for early diagnosis and treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic inflammatory condition characterized clinically by pruritus and eczematous lesions. An inverse relationship has been suggested between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration and severity of atopic dermatitis. AIM: We carried out this controlled cross-sectional study to evaluate the association between the serum vitamin D3 levels and SCORAD index. MATERIALS AND METHODS: For this study, 40 patients with clinical diagnosis of AD based on UK diagnostic criteria were enrolled and 40 patients with minor ailments like superficial bacterial, fungal or viral infections and not suffering from atopic dermatitis were taken as controls...

Although atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common skin disorder, there remains an ongoing debate on this denomination, its definition and the binary view based on immunoglobulin E measurement. The wide spectrum of the clinical phenotype of AD reflects the complex genetic and pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying the disease. The diagnostic criteria have to be reconsidered and adapted to different ethnic populations. There is an urgent need for biomarker discovery further supporting the clinical diagnostic criteria as well as the precision medicine approach on a global level...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, recurrent, inflammatory skin disease which predominantly affects children. However, AD may persist until adulthood (persistent AD), or directly start in adults (adult-onset AD). AD often shows a non-flexural rash distribution, and atypical morphologic variants in adults and specific diagnostic criteria are lacking. Moreover, adult AD prevalence as well as detailed data which can characterize persistent vs adult-onset subtype are scant. The aim of this study was to investigate on the main features of adult AD particularly highlighting differences between persistent vs adult-onset form...

The guidelines for the treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD) issued by the Japanese Dermatological Association (JDA), which are basically designed for dermatologists, were first prepared in 2000 and revised in 2016. The guidelines for AD of the Japanese Society of Allergology (JSA), which are basically designed for allergologists, including internists, otorhinolaryngologists, ophthalmologists, and dermatologists, were first prepared in 2009 and revised in 2014. In this article, I review the definition, pathophysiology, etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, severity classification, examination for diagnosis and severity assessment, and treatments for AD in Japan according to these two guidelines for AD (JDA and JSA)...

BACKGROUND: Increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative stress (OS) has been reported in many allergic and inflammatory skin diseases, including urticaria, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis (AD). Melatonin is a hormone secreted from the pineal gland and is a potent antioxidant. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to measure serum antioxidant melatonin, oxidants of nitric oxide (NO), and malondialdehyde levels to calculate the serum oxidant-antioxidant balance based on the NO/melatonin and malondialdehyde/melatonin ratios and to determine the correlation with the disease severity in children with AD...

This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of cetirizine in dogs with atopic dermatitis (AD) while fulfilling Favrot's diagnostic clinical criteria. Dogs received either 3 mg/kg cetirizine (n = 27), or a placebo (n = 23) orally once daily for 14 days in a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study, without concomitant medication. The effects were evaluated using a pruritus visual analog scale at the start (day 0) and at day 14. After 14 days, cetirizine clearly had no effect on the pruritus in dogs with chronic AD, and there was no significant difference between groups...
