Abstract

Atopic dermatitis is the most frequent chronic skin pathology of childhood. In milder cases the condition tends to resolve, while in the moderate-to-severe forms the problems related to it go beyond the simple condition of illness and significantly affect the quality of life of the patient and their family. The burden of disease also has significant economic impact. These issues are amplified when the disease does not resolve and involves patients in adolescence and adulthood.
