SUMMARY.— Clinical observations are made on a series of 22 patients with cholinergic urticaria, representing 0·2% of total referrals to dermatological out‐patients and 7% of patients with urticarial eruptions. The average age of onset was 16 and the average duration 7·5 years. 
URTICARIA AND ANGIO‐OEDEMA
TLDR
The records of 554 consecutive patients attending hospitals in the Cambridge region with urticaria have been analysed with the aid of a computer and in 79%, the aetiology was unknown although in many cases aggravating factors, for example, psychological stress, aspirin, or infection, were detected. Expand
Atopic predisposition in cholinergic urticaria patients and its implications
TLDR
A higher frequency of atopy among CholU patients has been reported, but the significance of this observation is unclear. Expand
Urticaria and angioedema: an overview.
TLDR
Given the limited efficacy of presently approved antihistamine treatments and the significant side effects of steroids and cyclosporine, there is a pressing need to evaluate other anecdotally supported urticaria treatments in randomized, controlled trials. Expand
Pathogenic Mechanisms of Urticaria
TLDR
Angioedema has the same causes and pathogenic mechanisms as does urticaria, but the reaction occurs in the deep dermis and subcutaneous tissue and has swelling as the prominent manifestation with a normal external appearance of the skin. Expand
The physical urticarias. An update and review.
TLDR
This review is an attempt to update the reader, in a categoric manner, on the physical urticarias--clinical features, diagnostic tests, pathomechanism, course, and therapy. Expand
The significance of hypersensitivity to autologous sweat and serum in cholinergic urticaria: cholinergic urticaria may have different subtypes
The pathogenesis of cholinergic urticaria (ChU) has been unclear except for the involvement of acetylcholine. Attempts to classify ChU according to etiology have rarely been performed.
Urticaria--current concepts.
  • A. Taaffe
  • Medicine
  • Postgraduate medical journal
  • 1977
The mechanisms, clinical features and management of the various forms of urticaria are discussed. The importance of histamine receptors, complement and the kinin cascade are reviewed.
Successful treatment of disabling cholinergic urticaria.
TLDR
A 22-year-old African American U.S. sailor presented with an intermittent pruritic eruption precipitated by mild activity for the last 2 years, and was diagnosed with cholinergic urticaria, successfully controlled with a combination of cetirizine, montelukast, and propanolol. Expand
Pharmacologic therapy for urticaria.
TLDR
A better understanding of the underlying pathogenesis remains the greatest hope of formulating rational and effective therapy in treatment of chronic urticaria. Expand
A visual analogue scale for itch and pain in 23 cases of cholinergic urticaria
TLDR
Cholinergic urticaria (CholU) is a skin disorder characterized by highly pruritic wheals, 1-2 mm in size, with surrounding erythema, and usually appears after sweating, which can be induced by hot baths, physical exercise, and/or emotional stress. Expand

There can be little doubt that urticaria, as an abnormal reaction of the skin, was observed long before the time of Hippocrates, because of its appearance in response to a wide variety of injuriousExpand

Analysis of 50 cases of chronic urticaria revealed a large variety of foods, drugs, infections, inhalants, and other items as possible causes of the disorder. The patients ranged in age from 8 to 73Expand
CHOLINOGENIC URTICARIA AND CHOLINOGENIC ITCHING
TLDR
There has been a tendency to try to explain the reaction in persons with all types of physical urticaria on the basis of release of cortisol, and there is an interaction of these three factors which makes difficult the evaluation of any of them. Expand
AQUAGENIC URTICARIA. CONTACT SENSITIVITY REACTION TO WATER.
TLDR
Critical wetting of the sensitive areas of the skin surface, which triggers cholinergic urticaria, can be achieved by a few minutes immersion in a water bath, contact with distilled water, or sweating itself. Expand

URTICARIA CAUSED SPECIFICALLY BY THE ACTION OF PHYSICAL AGENTS: (LIGHT, COLD, HEAT, FREEZING, BURNS, MECHANICAL IRRITATION, AND PHYSICAL AND MENTAL EXERTION)

A good opportunity for a careful investigation of this relationship is afforded through the study of patients subject to urticaria and allied skin affections who appear to be markedly influenced by the action of physical agents. Expand
Role of histamine and acetylcholine in the mechanism of heat allergy; report of studies on a soldier.
TLDR
There have been a number of investigations which tend to show that the chemical substance that mediates allergy is acetylcholine, and this belief has been fostered by the fact that some allergic manifestations can be produced by certain cholinergic drugs. Expand
