Prognosis of Preschool Eczema and Factors of Importance for Remission
Emma Kristin Johansson, Anna Bergström, Inger Kull, Tomas Lind, Cilla Söderhäll, Erik Melén, Samina Asad, Maria Bradley, Agne Liedén, Natalia Ballardini, Carl-Fredrik Wahlgren
In a Swedish population-based birth cohort, half of children with preschool eczema (atopic dermatitis before age 4 years) were in complete remission by school age (from 4 to 16 years). Moreover, 8% had persistent eczema, and 41% had periods with and without eczema by school age. The most important prognostic factors were persistent preschool eczema (eczema at 1, 2, and 4 years), preschool eczema with sleep disturbance due to itch, and filaggrin mutation. These factors were strongly associated with reduced likelihood for remission by school age.

Clinical Features of Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria that Predict Disease Prognosis and Refractoriness to Standard Treatment
Laia Curto-Barredo, Laura Riba Archilla, Guillem Roura Vives, Ramon M. Pujol, Ana M. Giménez-Arnau
Learning from our patients helps to develop a strategic plan of management. What we’ve learned from a cohort of 549 patients suffering Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria? First, clinical predictors of longer course include late onset of CSU (> 45 years old), concomitant chronic inducible urticaria, relapsing course showing multiples episodes of CSU, and a demonstrated serum autoreactivity. Second, most of the patients were refractory to second-generation antihistamines at licensed dose. Only baseline activity (UAS7) of the disease is useful to predict refractoriness to any H1-antihistamine at any dose. Complete control the disease requires then anti-IgE therapy as first choice or inmumodulation .
