In order to qualify as a case of atopic dermatitis, we propose that an individual must have an itchy skin condition plus three or more of the following: history of flexural involvement, a history of asthma/hay fever, a history of a generalized dry skin, onset of rash under the age of 2 years, or visible flexural dermatitis. When tested in an independent sample of 200 consecutive dermatology outpatients of all ages, this arrangement of the diagnostic criteria achieved 69% sensitivity and 96… Expand
The U.K. Working Party's Diagnostic Criteria for Atopic Dermatitis.
TLDR
A working party of 13 dermatologists, two family practitioners and a paediatrician was assembled, with the aim of developing a minimum list of reliable discriminators for atopic dermatitis, finding that the discriminatory value of these criteria was satisfactory when tested against a further sample of 150 patients drawn from the community, who did not have skin disease. Expand
Validation of the U.K. diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis in a population setting
TLDR
The newly proposed diagnostic criteria for AD appear to work well as a 1‐year period prevalence measure in London schoolchildren, and further validation in adults and other countries are needed. Expand
The U.K. Working Party's Diagnostic Criteria for Atopic Dermatitis II. Observer variation of clinical diagnosis and signs of atopic dermatitis
TLDR
Within‐observer variation for the recording of physical signs was substantially better than between‐ob Server variation, and some signs showed poor agreement, such as keratosis pilaris, xerosis, orbital pigmentation, fine hair, and extensor dermatitis. Expand
Community validation of the United Kingdom diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis in Romanian schoolchildren
TLDR
This study suggests that the U.K. criteria for atopic dermatitis diagnostic criteria perform well in settings outside theU.K. Expand
Validation of the diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis in the adult Thai population.
TLDR
Diagnosing atopic dermatitis in Thai people older than 13 years, a patient must have a history of flexural dermatitis plus two or more of the other mentioned criteria to achieve satisfactory sensitivity and specificity. Expand
Validation of the diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
These diagnostic criteria for AD are highly specific and are suitable for clinical trials, however, they may not achieve enough sensitivity to be useful for large, population-based epidemiological studies or for routine clinical practice, at least in Iran. Expand
Diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis in Thai children.
TLDR
A minimum set of diagnostic criteria for AD consisted of history of itchy rash, history of flexural dermatitis, chronicity more than 6 months, and visible xerosis, periorbital dermatitis and perifollicular accentuation. Expand
Clinical Application of the UK Working Party's Criteria for the Diagnosis of Atopic Dermatitis in the Chinese Population by Age Group
TLDR
A modest ability among Chinese dermatologists to apply the UK Working Party's diagnostic criteria for AD is indicated, especially in patients aged <4 years and ≥10 years. Expand
Development and validation of a questionnaire for diagnosing atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
The Danish questionnaire was developed from the UK Working Party's questionnaire for atopic dermatitis and includes a severity score, and it is suggested that future epidemiological studies aimed at establishing new knowledge on atopy dermatitis should include history, current symptoms and findings and a severity scores. Expand
Evaluation of diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis: validity of the criteria of Williams et al. in a hospital‐based setting
TLDR
The diagnostic efficiency of the minimum, simplified, diagnostic criteria proposed by Williams et al. was basically similar to those of Hanifin and Rajka and of Kang and Tian in the out-patient settings, however, those of Williams et-al. Expand

Atopic dermatitis in the first six months of life.
TLDR
AD in the first months of life is characterized by the prevalence of exudating lesions; moreover, the lack of or the rare evidence of scratching allows us to observe isolated vesicular lesions that are found with difficulty in the further course of the disease. Expand
Evaluation and relevance of atopic basic and minor features in patients with atopic dermatitis and in the general population.
TLDR
A diagnostic score system was constructed which might help to establish a firm diagnosis of AD in patients with ambiguous cutaneous inflammatory disease and an association between serum IgE and the amount of atopic points was found. Expand

TLDR
Although pruritus does not distinguish atopic dermatitis from the other forms of eczema, it may be regarded as an essential clinical feature and these criteria can be particularly helpful where the pattern of Eczema is non-specific. Expand
Secular change in the occurrence of atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
In order to compare epidemiologic data from varying times and locations, a framework for questionnaire studies in atopic dermatitis is proposed. Expand
Re-evaluation of skin lesion distribution in atopic dermatitis. Analysis of cases 0 to 9 years of age.
TLDR
The trunk was the most common predilection site in both infants and children and only the upper arm was affected more frequently on the external side than the internal side in all age groups. Expand
Evaluation of Minor Clinical Features of Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
Six of the minor features of atopic dermatitis, chelitis, nipple eczema, perifollicular accentuation, white dermographism, recurrent conjunctivitis, and anterior neck folds, were encountered as often in patients as in controls. Expand
A longitudinal study of contact sensitivity in patients with atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
Dinitrochlorobenzene challenge tests were positive in 33% of severe cases, in 95% of moderate cases, and in 100% of mild cases, indicating that DNCB contact sensitivity is diminished only in patients with AD who have extensive skin lesions. Expand
