Recommended Terms & Privacy Glossary The prevalence rate of AD is rising, and AD affects 15-30% of children and 2-10% of adults. This figure estimates the prevalence in developed countries. In China and Iran, the prevalence rate is approximately 2-3%. The frequency is increased in patients who immigrate to developed countries from underdeveloped countries.

[PMC free article] [PubMed] Leung DY Atopic dermatitis (AD) (or atopic eczema) is a chronic skin condition that affects the quality of life of both adults and children. Topical corticosteroids (TCS) are the main ointments used for treatment, but there is a risk of side‐effects with their use, such as skin thinning. A class of drugs called topical calcineurin inhibitors, which include topical tacrolimus (and pimecrolimus), might provide an alternative to this problem, but since tacrolimus is a newer ointment compared with corticosteroids, there are still some questions about its effectiveness and safety.

Patient Care & Health Information In healthy individuals, balance exists between important subsets of T cells (eg, Th1, Th2, Th17, Th22). The primary immune dysfunction hypothesis invokes an imbalance in the T cell subsets, with Th2 cells predominating; this results in the production of type 2 cytokines such as interleukin (IL)–4, IL-5, and IL-13, causing an increase in IgE from plasma cells. Later, in persons with chronic AD, the Th1 cells have been shown to predominate. More recently, Th17 cells have been found to be elevated in patients with AD. [9] Although primarily considered a Th2 cell‒associated cytokine-mediated disease, the precise contributions of Th1 and Th17 cell responses remain to be fully defined. A major susceptibility locus for atopic dermatitis maps to chromosome 3q21.
