- Thirty patients with hands and feet eczema were evaluated with special reference
to relationship with atopic dermatitis. To know the relationship we observed the basic
and minor features of atopic dermatitis described by Hanifin in patients who visited our
hospital with the chief complaints of eczema of hands and feet. Among the 30, 28 had basic
features and 20 had minor features of atopic dermatitis.
It can be speculated that most patients with hands and feet eczema in children have an
atopic constitution so that hands and feet eczema in children seems to be an expression of
atopic eczema. Two of thirty patients did not have an atopic consitution and eczema in these
patients might be distinct dermatoses which are not related with atopic dermatitis.
