Background  Atopic dermatitis (AD) has a wide spectrum of dermatological manifestations and despite various validated sets of diagnostic criteria that have been developed over the past decades, there is disagreement about its definition. Nevertheless, clinical studies require valid diagnostic criteria for reliable and reproducible results. 
Atopic dermatitis diagnostic criteria and outcome measures for clinical trials: still a mess.

  • Medicine
  • The Journal of investigative dermatology

TLDR
The Harmonizing Outcome Measures for Eczema (HOME) initiative addresses the urgent need for consensus, but more work will be required. Expand
A comparative case‐control study of diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis and proposal of new diagnostic criteria from Tunisia
TLDR
The objectives were to study the epidemiologic characteristics of AD in Tunisia and to evaluate five diagnostic criteria (Hanifin and Rajka, Williams, Taieb and Boralevi, REACH and ISAAC questionnaire). Expand
Different definitions of atopic dermatitis: impact on prevalence estimates and associated risk factors†
There is no objective test that can unequivocally confirm the diagnosis of atopic dermatitis (AD), and no uniform clinical definition.
Clinical features of atopic dermatitis in a hospital‐based setting in China
  • M. Shi, H. Zhang, +15 authors Z. Yao
  • Medicine
  • Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology : JEADV
  • 2011
TLDR
There have been few detailed reports of the clinical evaluation of Chinese patients with AD, but the results suggest that atopic dermatitis is a chronic relapsing inflammatory skin disease that requires follow-up treatment with corticosteroids. Expand
No todo es dermatitis atópica
TLDR
A simple guideline is produced on the most intuitive and necessary clues to get out successfully in this business of atopic dermatitis. Expand
Phenotypic analysis of atopic dermatitis in children aged 1–12 months: elaboration of novel diagnostic criteria for infants in China and estimation of prevalence
  • Y. Guo, H. Zhang, +33 authors Z. Yao
  • Medicine
  • Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology : JEADV
  • 2019
TLDR
A large number of children with atopic dermatitis in infancy are diagnosed with at least some form of AD, but the diagnosis and definite significance of infantile AD remains a debated issue. Expand
Poor agreement in questionnaire‐based diagnostic criteria for adult atopic dermatitis is a challenge when examining cardiovascular comorbidity
The association between atopic dermatitis (AD) and cardio‐metabolic risk factors is not yet established. Furthermore, no validated questionnaire‐based method of identifying adults with AD isExpand

TLDR
The epidermal barrier was rediscovered as important pathophysiological co‐factor of this disease and genome‐wide studies revealed several susceptibility loci. Expand
Photo(chemo)therapy in the management of atopic dermatitis: an updated systematic review with implications for practice and research
Photo(chemo)therapy is a common treatment modality in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD), but evidence on its effectiveness has not been recently systematically reviewed.
Atopic Dermatitis in Infants and Young Children
TLDR
Although clinically indistinguishable, AD has been categorized into an immunoglobulin e (Ige) associated form (true AD) and a non‐Ige‐associated form (“non‐ atopic” dermatitis, formerly called intrinsic AD). Expand

Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
Chinese patients with atopic dermatitis were compared with a Caucasian population for the basic features, and laboratory findings of immunologic alteration and altered pharmacologic reactivity are relatively more important feature for the diagnosis of atopy. Expand
