BACKGROUND: The basophil activation test (BAT) using CD63 expression is a sensitive and specific tool for the diagnostic workup of autoimmune chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU). The definition of a positive BAT is directly dependent on the reference range and the cutoff values established in control populations. As of now, the pediatric reference range and cutoff values of the CD63 BAT remain to be established. METHODS: In this study, we analyzed CD63 expression in 80 children (1-17 years old) without chronic urticaria (i...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Physical urticaria/angioedema syndromes (PUAs) are commonly encountered. They are identified by a history of physical factors provoking cutaneous symptoms, and confirmed by provocation testing. Recent guidelines have recommended use of challenge procedures for diagnosis; however, their positive/negative likelihood ratios have not been established. RECENT FINDINGS: We conducted a systematic review to determine the diagnostic utility of recommended office procedures for three common PUAs: dermatographia (DERMATO), cholinergic urticaria (CHOL), and delayed pressure urticaria/angioedema (DPUA)...

BACKGROUND: Dermographism is a type of physical urticaria that can be induced by writing on the skin. It occurs in 2-5% of the population and is considered to be a normal physiological phenomenon. However, in a small subset of patients, it can be symptomatic and may affect the quality of life. The etiology of this disease remains unclear. CASE REPORT: Herein, we present a case of dermographism in a 20-year-old male and discuss the involvement of the oral mucosa in this condition...

There have been recent advances in the classification and management of chronic urticaria. The new term chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) has replaced chronic idiopathic urticaria and chronic autoimmune urticaria. In addition, chronic inducible urticaria (CINDU) has replaced physical urticaria and includes other forms of inducible urticaria, such as cholinergic and aquagenic urticaria. Furthermore, novel research has resulted in a new understanding with guidelines being revised in the past year by both the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI) and the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI)/Global Allergy and Asthma European Network (GA (2)LEN)/European Dermatology Forum (EDF)/World Allergy Organization (WAO)...

Cold urticaria is a physical urticaria characterized by a localized or systemic eruption of papules upon exposure of the skin to cold air, liquids, and/or objects. In some cases, angioedema and anaphylaxis also may occur. The symptoms of cold urticaria can have a negative impact on patients' quality of life. Second-generation H1 antihistamines are the first line of treatment in cold urticaria; however, patients who are unresponsive to initial treatment with H1 antihistamines may require further management options...

BACKGROUND: Cholinergic urticaria is a form of physical urticaria triggered by high ambient temperature, strenuous physical activity, and strong emotion. These same triggers may cause multisystem reactions that can be life-threatening. A study of patients with cholinergic urticaria with anaphylaxis was undertaken to describe the demographic and clinical features of this form of anaphylaxis. OBJECTIVE: To describe a cohort of patients with anaphylaxis triggered by high ambient temperature, exertion, and stress...

BACKGROUND: Aquagenic urticaria is a rare but well-known form of physical urticaria mainly affecting young women. It is characterised by the appearance of erythematous and pruritic plaques a few minutes after initial contact with water and irrespective of temperature. The physiopathology of this condition remains poorly understood. Herein, we report a case of localised aquagenic urticaria occurring solely on contact with seawater. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 32-year-old woman reported onset of erythematous and pruritic plaques, confined to the neck and lower part of the face, several minutes after the start of bathing in seawater...

BACKGROUND: About 25-45% of patients of chronic urticaria (CU) have been stated to have histamine releasing autoantibodies in their blood. The term autoimmune urticaria is increasingly being accepted for this subgroup of patients. Review of the literature suggests high autologous serum skin test (ASST) positivity and presence of antithyroid microsomal antibodies in patients with autoimmune urticaria. AIMS: To study prevalence of ASST positivity and antithyroid microsomal antibodies in chronic "idiopathic" urticaria and to study the correlation between the two parameters...

In the last few decades, increasing understanding of the pathomechanisms involved in chronic urticaria has highlighted the heterogeneity of different subtypes, and chronic urticaria is now classified as chronic spontaneous urticaria and inducible urticaria. Although many factors are thought to be involved in chronic urticaria, the etiology is yet to be clarified. The purpose of this study was to investigate etiological factors in patients with chronic urticaria. Five hundred patients with chronic urticaria, 351 women and 149 men, were studied for etiological factors...

Adrenergic urticaria (AU) is a rare type of stress-induced physical urticaria characterized by widespread pruritic urticarial papules. Diagnosis can be made by i.d. injection of adrenaline or noradrenaline, which produces the characteristic rash. Although the lesions of AU typically respond to beta-blockers such as propranolol, the therapeutic options for AU are limited. Here, we report a case of AU that was resistant to beta-blockers and successfully treated with clotiazepam. The clinical picture of AU resembles that of cholinergic urticaria (CU), however, positive noradrenaline test and negative acetylcholine skin test were useful for the differential diagnosis of AU and CU...

Omalizumab is a monoclonal anti-IgE antibody that has been used to treat allergic asthma for over a decade. The use of omalizumab to treat other diseases has largely been limited to case reports until the recently reported large multicenter studies that have established omalizumab as an effective treatment option for chronic spontaneous urticaria. The utility of omalizumab to treat nonallergic asthma and allergic rhinitis and the added safety and therapeutic benefits in combination with allergen immunotherapy have been demonstrated in placebo-controlled trials...

REVIEW
Paul A Greenberger
Chronic urticaria is defined as episodic or daily hives lasting for at least 6 weeks and impairs quality of life. Two main subtypes include chronic idiopathic (spontaneous) urticaria and inducible (physical) urticaria, but some patients have urticarial vasculitis. "Autoimmune chronic urticaria" implies the presence of histamine releasing or mast cell activating autoantibodies to IgE or FcϵRI, the high affinity receptor on mast cells and basophils. In patients not readily controlled with labeled dosages of second generation H1 receptor antagonists (antihistamines), there is evidence for reduction of urticaria using up to 4 fold increases in labeled dosages...
