In the last decades the prevalence of atopic dermatitis has considerably increased all over the world. In addition to genetic factors, environmental impacts (allergens, ills of civilization, etc.) play an essential role in its development.
This book gives an overview of the clinical picture and the pathology of this everyday disease. The differential diagnosis of the disorder, the relationship between immunodeficiency and atopic dermatitis, the psychological and psychiatric aspects of atopic dermatitis, and the most recent knowledge on its pathophysiology are discussed in separate chapters. In the last chapter the possibilities of the conventional and up-to-date therapeutical possibilities are listed, and also recommendations for the practical implementation of the treatment are presented.
Numerous tables and color pictures complement the theoretical and practical treatise.
The work's aim is to facilitate the therapeutic activity of clinicians (pediatricians, dermatologists, gastroenterologists, otolaryngologists, ophthalmologists, etc.), family doctors, family pediatricians and thus to make permanent remission a reality for a great number of patients.
