Abstract: Photosensitive atopic dermatitis (AD) is a rare disease entity that many physicians are not familiar with, thus it often is misdiagnosed. It can be life altering, as patients often strictly avoid the sun and may only leave the house at night. Effective treatments are available, and therefore diagnosis is key to improve quality of life for these patients.
Abstract: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the cause of substantial morbidity including severe pruritus and impaired personal and familial quality of life. Furthermore, the rising incidence and familial association of AD have highlighted the need for disease prevention. It is largely genetic in nature and cannot be avoided in all cases.

Abstract: Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is an extra-intestinal manifestation of coeliac disease.

recent paper by Akiyama and coworkers questions one more time about role of FLG in A.D.Since first reports of heterozygous mutations of FLG in A.D. patients (1) replicated in northern European populations (2-3-4) and therefore in other populations worldwide (5), genetic studies of patient with I.V. /intrinsic A.D. of different populations of different ancestry as African American (6), and Ethiopian (7) make clear that haploinsufficiency of other structural proteins of epidermis are pathogenic for this phenotype and confirmed the Elias et al. "Outside-to-Inside and back to outside" hypothesis, previously pointed out by permeability studies of stratum corneum of A.D. patients (8). This article is protected by copyright.

A 27-year-old Japanese woman visited our hospital with eruptions on the lips, which had appeared two days after she took acetaminophen. At day 15, her lips were severely swollen with erosions, most of which were covered with dense crusts (Figure 1). Clinically, Stevens-Johnson syndrome due to acetaminophen was suspected. However, the drug-induced lymphocyte stimulation test for the reagent was negative (stimulation index: 156%; normal: < 179%), and the eruption did not recur after she resumed acetaminophen.

Systemic and biological therapies are evolving treatment modalities in the management of atopic dermatitis (AD. Despite these welcome advances in the management of refractory cases, phototherapy remains the recommended(1) second-line treatment option for AD when topical treatments fail to control symptoms. According to a recently published survey of UK dermatologists(2) , 46% of dermatologists still choose phototherapy, either ...
