Evolution of Atopic Dermatitis in the 21st Century 1st
This comprehensive guide offers a state-of-the-art overview of basic and clinical aspects of atopic dermatitis (AD).
The name “atopic dermatitis” was first used in 1933, and Drs. Lewis Webb Hill and Marion B. Sulzberger presented their report “Evolution of atopic dermatitis” in 1935. Their observations accurately forecasted the contemporary issues in the management of the condition, such as the conclusions that should be drawn from our understanding of the pathogenesis of AD, and the use of steroids as the main treatment. Several aggravating factors have recently been identified, and these also need to be addressed.
