Atopic Eczema: Diagnosis & Treatment

Handbook of Atopic Eczema / J. RING – 2nd edition

Atopic eczema is one of the most frequent inflammatory skin diseases and its prevalence is rising. It presents major problems for patients and physicians as well as for researchers all over the world. Few diseases are discussed as heatedly.

Atopic eczema seems to be in the midst of debates regarding scientific medicine versus complementary medicine, and caught up in the “battle” among disciplines such as dermatology, pediatrics, and allergology. In spite of the great progress in experimental allergology and dermatology, where atopic eczema is a paradigm of scientific progress, there is still a wide gap between the theoretical knowledge and the practical everyday management procedures in the physician’s office.

The burden of suffering is not confined to the individual affected with this excruciating pruritic skin disease; often whole families are disrupted and the complete environment of a patient is involved. The loss in quality of life, measured with standard scales, is massive – as great as in people suffering from cancer!

It can truly be stated that this “Handbook of Atopic Eczema” covers the whole gamut of current knowledge in research and practice. At the end of each chapter the reader will find a comprehensive reference list.
