The prevalence of atopic eczema (AE) in adulthood is 1-3%. A positive family history, early disease onset, a severe disease course in childhood, and comorbidity of other disorders among the circle of atopic forms are predictors for persistence of AE into adulthood; furthermore, genetic risk factors are assumed. Initial manifestation of AE in adulthood is also possible. Stress/psychological burden have been classified as the most important triggering factor of AE. To date a causal therapy for AE is not available...

A PEDIATRIC PATHOGEN: Staphylococci remain one of the most important pathogenic agents leading to community-acquired infection in children. Over the last decades, there has been an evolution in the localizations of these infections: dramatic pleuropulmonary staphylococcal infection in newborns has almost entirely disappeared in developed countries. Conversely, skin infections and soft tissue infections as well as bone and joint localizations are frequent. The severity of these bone and joint infections has however declined allowing less aggressive therapeutic regimens...

In atopic eczema patients the well-known abnormal cutaneous reactivity of the blood vessels (white dermographism, delayed blanch after acetylcholine, paradoxical blanching after nicotinic acid application and diminished erythema after histamine injection) were observed during acute eczematous episodes and later in an exzema-free state in comparison with controls. In this follow-up study the use of different stimuli allowed us to demonstrate abnormal cutaneous vascular reactions in the patients depending on the severity of their atopic eczema...

Two prepubertal girls were treated with Dianabol cream by their family physicians during 6 and 8 months because of an anal exzema. In both of them, growth velocity and bone maturation were accelerated, and there was hypertrophy of the clitoris and deepening of the voice. In one girl, all symptoms with the exception of the deep voice had disappeared six years after the discontinuation of treatment. In the other girl, final evaluation is not yet possible. The two observations show that androgens and anabolic steroids may have a marked systemic action if applied percutaneously...

The purpose of a pilot study with 20 patients, suffering from dyshidrotic exzema of the hands, was to investigate the relevance of a psychosomatic approach for its etiology and therapy. A set of psychological and allergological tests revealed the following results. - 10 patients suffered from a contact allergy (epicutaneous test), 6 of them were allergic to nickel - the patients were less aggressive and more permissive (Freiburger Personality Inventory; FPI) as compared to a standard population. They reported more somatic complaints (HHM) as healthy subjects...

Absorption of lactulose and mannitol was measured in eleven patients with atopic eczema and lactulose/mannitol excretion ratios were calculated. Mean lactulose absorption was increased in the patients with exzema and their excretion ratios were higher than those of controls. There was no correlation between either eczema extent or severity and the excretion ratio. We conclude that small intestinal passive permeability is increased in some patients with atopic eczema.

The treatment of the different diseases which are comprised under the determination of "eczema" is mainly an anti-inflammatory treatment. Thus, topical corticosteroids play a large role. Development of more potent topical corticosteroids has lead to increasing numbers of unwanted side effects. In local therapy of eczema it is important to consider the phase of the disease when one chooses the vehicle: wet dressings, lotions, creams or ointments are applied according to the actual state of the skin. Special localisations also have to be considered e...

Up to date, the treatment of palmar/plantar hyperkeratoses presents a therapeutic problem. The known therapeutic procedures result in short-term improvement only, if any at all. In these investigations involving 68 patients suffering from palmar/plantar hyperkeratoses of different etiology, small doses of vitamin A acid (retinoic acid) topically applied, produced a striking improvement in hypertrophic lichen planus of palms or soles: the regression was complete and in most cases permanent. The skin texture of patients with genetic keratoses and callosities became normal within a few weeks: but this condition remained free of symptoms only as long as vitamin A acid was used as a maintenance dose once or twice weekly...
