“…One study found high rates of personal (50%) and family history (38%) of atopy in NE 10 . A study of 26 patients with NE found lower serum immunoglobulin E levels compared to AD 40 . It may be that clinicians were more inclined to assign a final diagnosis of AD if the patient had a history of atopy and a final diagnosis NE if they did not have a history of AD.…”

“…It is also remarkable that the number of the positive prick test responders to C. albicans in the NE patients were much higher than that in the young control group [2], which indicates that there occurs a shift from Th1 to Th2 type reactivity in these patients as in AD patients [3]. Taken together, the skin test results obtained in the present study indicate that elderly patients with NE can produce both immediate and delayed hypersensitivity reactions to common aeroallergens in a fashion comparable to young AD patients.…”

“…However, NE in elderly patients can be distinguished from the latter by the absence of a familial or personal history of atopic diseases as well as by the characteristic distribution of lesions over the lower limbs. Krueger et al [2]ruled out a relationship between AD and NE from their findings that an increase in serum IgE levels was demonstrated only in 2 of 26 adult patients with NE.…”

“…The presence in these skin lesions of some polymorphonuelear granulocytes and lymphocytes in the periorbital and eyelid skin, whieh due to its thinness is known to be prone to contact dermatitis, raises the question of whether these cutaneous ehanges are directly related to the vitamin A-defieient status or to secondary antigenic stimulus. In this context it is interesting to point out that other skin diseases apparently related to immunological alterations, such as nummular eczema, icthyosis (Krueger et al 1973), atopic dermatitis (Rogge & Hanifin 1976), , «and lichen planus (Griffith et al 1974), are mentioned by some authors as showing an adequate response to vitamin A or retinoid treatment (Benedek 1959, Ebner & Miseher 1975. Another interesting characteristic of the epidermal cells in hypovitaminosis A was the presence of dense bodies in the cytoplasm of basal and spinous keratinocytes and the occurrence of these bodies in increasing numbers in the homy layer.…”
