Response to patient-initiated plant extract treatment for atopic dermatitis.

Abstract

Ethnomedical practices are increasing in all parts of the world, including many urban centers. We describe a unique case of a 7-year-old girl with atopic dermatitis who was responsive to parent-initiated treatment with the extract of a plant from the Chenopodium genus. A brief discussion raises awareness of such practices to the practicing dermatologist.
