Diagnosi della dermatite atopica

Estratto

La dermatite atopica (DA) è una malattia difficile da definire: infatti essa si può presentare in moite forme, la diagnosi è eminentemente clinica e non si basa su test diagnostici. Allo scopo di rendere possibili i confronti fra casistiche di differenti studi sono stati formulati dei criteri diagnostici [1-5], sebbene molti esperti considerino l’adozione di questi come una imposizione intrusiva. Occorre però ricordare che questi criteri hanno necessariamente dei limiti nella loro applicazione, e, mentre sono adeguati per classificare gruppi di pazienti, non sono talora utili nel singolo caso, dal momento che 1a loro sensibilità e specificità non è del 100%.
