Atopic Dermatitis (Besnier Disease) and Homoeopathy

Atopic Dermatitis (Besnier Disease)

Definition

A multifactorial, chronic, and relapsing (Psora) disorder associated with impaired skin barrier function (Psora/Pseudopsora); environmental hypersensitivity (Psora/Pseudopsora); and asthma (Psora/Sycosis) that may begin in infancy and is characterized by very pruritic (Psora) and eczematous skin lesions (Psora/pseudopsora) in age-specific patterns.

Differential Diagnosis

Infantile

• Acrodermatitis enteropathica- a rare inherited form of zinc deficiency, characterized by periorificial and acral dermatitis, alopecia, and diarrhea. | cund. graph. hep. loxo-recl. nat-p. Nit-ac. paeon. petr.  psor. Sulph.

• Ataxia–telangiectasia- an autosomal recessive, complex, multisystem disorder characterized by progressive neurologic impairment, cerebellar ataxia, variable immunodeficiency with susceptibility to sinopulmonary infections, impaired organ maturation, x-ray hypersensitivity, ocular and cutaneous telangiectasia, and a predisposition to malignancy. | Alum. Bar-c.


• Biotin deficiency- Biotin or Vitamin H is an ingredient of Vitamin B complex, deficiency of which causes hair loss, dry scaly skin, cracking in the corners of the mouth (called cheilitis), swollen and painful tongue that is magenta in color (glossitis), dry eyes, loss of appetite, fatigue, insomnia, and depression. | Ars.

Langerhans cells are immune cells that are normally found within the epidermis where they act as antigen-presenting cells in an early warning system fighting foreign material such as bacteria. They may migrate to the local lymph glands but usually return to the skin. It generally presents with many small pinkish or reddish-brown bumps on the skin that may become crusted and infected. | acon. Agar. AM-C. anac. Anan. ant-c. ant-t. apis Arn.

Diagnostic Criteria

AAD Consensus Criteria

Essential features: must be present, and if complete, are sufficient for diagnosis.

– Pruritus

– Eczematous changes

– Typical and age-specific patterns

– Facial, neck, and extensor involvement in infants and children

– Current or prior flexural lesions in adults/any age

– Sparing of groin and axillary regions

– Chronic or relapsing course

Important features: seen in most cases for support of the diagnosis.

– Early age of onset

– Atopy (IgE reactivity)

– Xerosis

Associated features: help in suggesting the diagnosis.

– Keratosis pilaris, ichthyosis vulgaris, palmar hyperlinearity

– Atypical vascular responses

– Perifollicular accentuation/lichenification/prurigo

– Ocular/periorbital changes

Dr. Rajneesh Kumar Sharma, You have presented all that multifactorial, chronic relapsing Psoric disorder associated with impaired skin barrier function & environmental hypersensitivity et al, with great detail. You have also given a very useful differential diagnosis with abundant repertorial information. All this can be of good use in numerous cases. Well done Dr. Sharma
