    BACKGROUND: Chronic pruritus is a multifactorial, challenging symptom of global relevance.

    OBJECTIVE: The European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology Network on Assessment of Severity and Burden of Pruritus (PruNet) investigation aimed to analyze the severity and humanistic burden of chronic pruritus in patients suffering from inflammatory dermatoses across Europe.

    METHODS: Prospectively collected routine data on 552 patients (with atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, prurigo ...

    BACKGROUND: The term prurigo has been used for many decades in dermatology without clear definition, and currently used terminology of prurigo is inconsistent and confusing. Especially, itch-related prurigo remains unexplored regarding the epidemiology, clinical profile, natural course, underlying causes, available treatments and economic burden, although burdensome and difficult to treat.

    OBJECTIVE: To address these issues, the multicentre European Prurigo Project (EPP) was designed to ...

    BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a chronic dermatosis which may cause significant impairment of the patient's quality of life.

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the social problem-solving skills, perceived stress, negative life events, depression and life satisfaction in psoriasis patients.

    METHODS: Data were gathered by means of questionnaires and clinical evaluations from 51 psoriatic patients and 51 matched healthy controls.

    RESULTS: Average disease duration was ...

    BACKGROUND: Acne vulgaris is a common disease among adolescents and known to have adverse effects on psychological status.

    METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted on 600 participants by means of a questionnaire designed for this study in high school students. In addition, an objective evaluation of acne in participants was undertaken. The questionnaire consisted of questions about acne, General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES).

    RESULTS: Five ...

    AIM: Increased frequency of cardiovascular disease and its possible relations with insulin resistance have been reported in patients with inflammatory diseases. The aim of our study was to investigate insulin resistance and serum adiponectin levels as cardiovascular risk markers in patients with Behçet's disease.

    METHOD: Study population consisted of 40 patients with Behçet's disease (BD) and a control group composed of age, gender, body mass index-matched 46 healthy individuals. All ...

    BACKGROUND: Chronic pruritus is a frequently occurring symptom of various dermatoses that causes a high burden and impaired quality of life. An effective anti pruritic therapy is important for the patient, but its effectiveness is difficult to evaluate. Diverse methods and interpretations of pruritic metrics are utilized in clinical trials and the daily clinical practice in different countries, resulting in difficulties comparing collected data.

    METHODS: We founded a European Network on ...

    BACKGROUND: Chronic pruritus (CP) is a frequently occurring symptom in inflammatory dermatoses, causing a high burden and limitations to health-related quality of life (HRQoL).

    OBJECTIVE: The ItchyQoL was developed to assess the impairment to HRQoL in patients with CP. However, it has only been validated in English and German. Here, we report the validation in several languages across Europe.

    METHODS: After professional translation, the versions of ItchyQoL were digitized for use as a ...

    BACKGROUND: Chronic nodular prurigo (CNPG) is a condition characterized by chronic itch, a prolonged scratching behaviour and the presence of pruriginous nodules. A comprehensive understanding of this condition, especially regarding its clinical characteristics and impact on quality of life is still lacking.

    OBJECTIVES: Aim of this pan-European multicentre cross-sectional study was to establish the clinical profile of CNPG, including its associated burden.

    METHODS: Fifteen centres from ...

    BACKGROUND: Notalgia paresthetica is a sensory neuropathy involving the dorsal spinal nerves. The characteristic symptom is pruritus on the back, occasionally accompanied by pain, paresthesia, and/or hyperesthesia, which results in a well-circumscribed hyperpigmented patch in the symptomatic area. The etiology of this condition has not yet been completely defined.

    OBJECTIVE: Possible mechanisms that could explain the pathogenesis of notalgia paresthetica were investigated through ...

    Paederus dermatitis is a specific form of acute irritant contact dermatitis caused by pederin, a secretion of insects of the genus Paederus. The disease is characterized by vesicles, bullae and sometimes small pustules on an erythematous base with sudden onset of a stinging, burning sensation. The dermatitis is most frequently seen in regions with a hot, tropical climate. We present 46 cases from Aydin, Turkey, a province well known for its long hot summers. These are the first cases ...

    Abstract. The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the value of power Doppler ultrasonography (PDUS) in assessing the vascularity of skin tumors other than malignant melanoma, and to investigate possible diagnostic criteria to help to distinguish malignant from benign tumors preoperatively. Seventy-one patients with the clinical diagnosis of a skin tumor were initially evaluated by ultrasonography. Then PDUS was performed and the presence and type of vascularity (peripheral ...

    BACKGROUND: Chronic urticaria (CU) predominantly affects women, and sex hormones can modulate disease activity in female CU patients. As of now, the impact of pregnancy on CU is largely unknown.

    AIM: To analyze the course and features of CU during and after pregnancy.

    PATIENTS AND METHODS: PREG-CU is an international, multicenter study of the Urticaria Centers of Reference and Excellence (UCARE) network. Data were collected via a 47-item questionnaire completed by CU patients, who became ...
