atopic dermatitis
Atopic Dermatitis
  • Aka atopic eczema
  • Aka infantile eczema
  • Aka flexural eczema
  • Aka disseminated neurodermatitis
  • Aka prurigo diathsique
atopic dermatitis1
Atopic Dermatitis
  • High level of IgE antibodies to House dust mites
  • IgE bound to Langerhans cells in atopic skin
  • Food exacerbates symptoms in some patients: eggs, peanuts, cow’s milk represent up to 75% of positive test.
atopic dermatitis2
Atopic Dermatitis
  • Pruritis is the hallmark of AD
  • Eczematous eruption leads to lichenified dermatitis
  • Itching precedes the appearance of lesions
infantile atopic dermatitis
Infantile Atopic Dermatitis
  • 60% of case AD present in the first year of life, after 2 months of age
  • Begin as itchy erythema of the cheeks
  • Distribution include scalp, neck, forehead, wrist, and extensors
  • May become desquamate leading to erythroderma.
infantile atopic dermatitis1
Infantile Atopic Dermatitis
  • Most cases the symptoms will disappear toward the end of the second year.
  • The role of food allergy in infantile and childhood atopic dermatitis has been clarified
  • Egg, peanut, milk, wheat, fish, soy, and chicken may exacerbate infantile AD
childhood atopic dermatitis
Childhood Atopic Dermatitis
  • Characterized by less acute lesions
  • Distribution: antecubital and popliteal fossae, flexor wrist, eyelids, and face.
  • Severe atopic dermatitis involving more than 50% of body surface area is associated with growth retardation.
adult atopic dermatitis
Adult Atopic Dermatitis
  • Distribution: antecubital and popliteal fossae, the front side of the neck, the forehead, and area around the eyes.
  • Atopic individuals are at greater risk of developing hand dermatitis than are the rest of the population
  • 70% develop hand dermatitis some times in their lives
cutaneous stigmata
Cutaneous stigmata
  • Dennie-Morgan fold
  • Pityriasis alba
  • Keratosis pilaris
  • Hertoghe’s sign – thinning of the lateral eyebrows
  • Keratosis punctata palmaris et plantaris
vascular stigmata
Vascular Stigmata
  • Headlight sign – perinasal and periorbital pallor
  • White dermographism – blanching of the skin at the site of stroking with a blunt instrument – cause edema and obscure color of underlying vessels.
  • Staph aureus – 90% of chronic lesions
  • Eczema herpeticum – generalized herpes simplex infection. Young children usually.
  • Vaccination against smallpox is contraindicated in person with atopic dermatitis. Even when condition is in remission, widespread and even fatal vaccinia can occur.
  • T helper cell type 2 (Th2) dominance
  • Th2 produces IL-4, 5, and 10
  • IL-4 and IL-5 produce elevated IgE and eosinophilia
  • IL-10 inhibits delayed type hypersensitivity
  • Th2 maybe sensitive to house mites or grass pollen
  • Monocytes produces elevated amount of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2)
  • PGE2 reduces gamma-interferon production, but not IL-4 from helper cells thereby enhancing the Th2 dominance
  • PGE2 also directly enhances IgE production from B cells
  • Langerhans cells of AD patient stimulate helper T cells into Th2 phenotype without the presence of antigen
  • Langerhans cells have IgE bound to their suface receptors. These IgE are associated with atopic antigens, such as house dust mites
differential diagnosis
Differential Diagnosis
