Scholarcy highlights

  • Atopic dermatitis is driven by a complex gene–environment interaction
  • Many of the risk factors and genetic underpinning previously observed for pediatric AD may not apply to adult atopic dermatitis, suggesting that these may largely be different disorders
  • Adult AD is associated with a substantial health care burden, with increased utilization, direct and indirect costs of care, and lost work productivity
