Overview

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is an increasingly common skin disease, but its distribution, frequency, and underlying causes have not yet been systematically reviewed in depth. Atopic Dermatitis takes an original look at the epidemiology of the disorder, its prevalence and possible causes. This unique volume draws on international experts from dermatology, epidemiology, pediatrics, and immunology. As an allergic disease, atopic dermatitis has much in common with other allergies and this comprehensive resource sheds new light on the mechanisms that underlie the allergic response. This wide-ranging reference will be invaluable for all involved in the treatment or study of atopic dermatitis.
