A chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus. It is manifested by lichenification, excoriation, and crusting involving mainly the face, neck and the flexural surfaces of the elbow and knee. The clinical picture varies greatly depending on the age of the patient, the course and duration of the disease. Atopic eczema may be distinguished from other types of dermatitis because of its typical course and associated stigmata.
