SUMMARY.— The records of 554 consecutive patients attending hospitals in the Cambridge region with urticaria have been analysed with the aid of a computer. These patients represent only a small minority of all patients with urticaria in the region. In 79%, the aetiology was unknown although in many cases aggravating factors, for example, psychological stress, aspirin, or infection, were detected. 
The hospitalized child with urticaria.
TLDR
The most common etiologic factor for the urticaria was infection (in 45% of the cases), while drugs or medications were responsible in 10% of patients, and almost half of the children received corticosteroids for the treatment of their urticarial. Expand
Clinical and aetiological aspects in urticaria and angio‐oedema
Summary Background Urticaria is a common disorder that affects as many as 20% of all people at some time during their lifetime.
Urticaria and angioedema. Current approach to common problems.
TLDR
Urticaria and angioedema are common problems encountered in clinical practice and identification of the cause is more likely in patients who present with acute (evanescent) symptoms than in patients whose symptoms follow a chronic course. Expand
Cholinergic urticaria with associated angio‐oedema
Three patients are described who developed angio‐oedema and urticaria after a hot bath challenge and physical exercise. In one patient this was accompanied by a fall in peak expiratory flow rate.Expand
A reassessment of diagnostic criteria and treatment of idiopathic urticarial vasculitis: a retrospective study of 47 patients
TLDR
An uncommon type of chronic urticaria, which exhibits leucocytoclastic vasculitis, often responsive to oral corticosteroids and poorly to oral antihistamines, and Hypocomplementaemia and systemic involvement are also commonly reported. Expand
Urticaria: A comprehensive review: Epidemiology, diagnosis, and work-up.
TLDR
The definition, classification, epidemiology, diagnosis, and work-up of urticaria is covered, taking into account the recent literature and the best available evidence. Expand
Urticaria and angioedema.
TLDR
Progress in the field of urticaria and angioedema is reviewed including developments in pathogenesis, description of laboratory testing, and review of medications. Expand
The clinical presentations of urticaria.
TLDR
Chronic urticaria can significantly affect the quality of life and is frequently misunderstood by patients who believe the condition is always the result of an allergy and is dangerous. Expand
Chronic Urticaria
TLDR
Chronic urticaria can be more debilitating and frustrating, and a cause is not found in over 75% of cases, but in these the etiology is often detectable. 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

TLDR
In a patient with severe wealing from chronic urticaria, a small dose of aspirin produced a severe exacerbation, whereas in the same patient at a later stage, when the wealing tendency was less, as much as 15 grains hardly showed any effect. Expand
Concerning the nature of intolerance to aspirin.
TLDR
A possible mechanism by which peripheral chemoreceptors might participate in the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma has been outlined and reviewed in the light of what is known about reflexes which control the vascular bed of the skin and the functional state of the respiratory mucous membranes.
