To evaluate the frequency of atopic dermato keratoconjunctivitis, its symptoms and changes in patients of Children’s Dermatology Clinic of Hospital da Santa Casa de Misericordia de São Paulo with a previous diagnosis of atopic dermatitis.
Fifty-two patients with atopic dermatitis under 16 years-old (mean age 8.9 ± 4.1 between 2 and 16 years) were ophthalmologic evaluated. The analysis was descriptive and statistical, with a 5% significance level.
The frequency of atopic dermato keratoconjunctivitis was 76.9% among 52 patients with atopic dermatitis, including atopic conjunctivitis (26.7%) and atopic blepharitis (50.2%). Atopic dermatitis is more frequent in female patients and atopic conjunctivitis in male. Age was practically the same in both groups.
The prevalence of atopic dermato keratoconjunctivitis was 76.9% in patients with atopic dermatitis. Due to the increased prevalence of atopic dermatitis in children, it would be prudent to perform routine ophthalmologic evaluation of these patients, since none of them had been previously monitored with Ophthalmological exams.
