  • On the basis of clinical observations it was predicted that patients with atopic dermatitis differ from patients with chronic obstructive bronchitis in three personality variables; excitability, inadequate stress coping, and paranoidity
  • No significant differences between these subgroups were expected regarding paranoidity. These assumptions again were supported by the findings of the present study
  • The results underline the potential importance of assessing personality variables and serum IgE levels in the diagnosis of AD patients
