Diagnosing chronic hand eczema by an algorithm: a tool for classification in clinical practice

Abstract: By providing a more precise clinical definition this diagnostic algorithm could improve the classification and taxonomy of hand eczema subtypes, facilitating more rational treatment decisions and allowing better treatment outcome analysis.

“…13,14 Scoring systems based on the severity of symptoms have been developed but are not routinely used in practice. 15 Cases are classified according to cause when possible, with the acknowledgment that different causes of hand eczema may be indistinguishable on examination.…”

“…Molin et al [14] found that patients with chronic irritant dermatitis more often had a hyperkeratotic rhagadiform and rarely a vesicular morphology; in allergic contact dermatitis, a mixed pattern of vesicular and hyperkeratotic lesions predominated. Similar results were reported from Johansen et al [12], who showed that irritant contact dermatitis was the most frequent etiology in the dry fissured variety and allergic contact dermatitis in the vesicular types.…”

“…It is generally considered that clinical morphology is poorly related to etiology [4,[12][13][14]. Molin et al [14] found that patients with chronic irritant dermatitis more often had a hyperkeratotic rhagadiform and rarely a vesicular morphology; in allergic contact dermatitis, a mixed pattern of vesicular and hyperkeratotic lesions predominated.…”

“…Molin et al have proposed a short and new graphical algorithm that is useful as a clear decision tool for diagnosing chronic hand eczema in clinical practice. The algorithm distinguished chronic hand eczema due to contact allergy, irritant damage, or a combination of the two, each either with or without atopy [23].…”
