Symptoms of cognitive impairment among children with atopic dermatitis

About The Study: The findings of this study suggest that pediatric atopic dermatitis (AD) was generally associated with greater odds of reported difficulties in learning and memory. However, this association was primarily limited to children with neurodevelopmental comorbidities, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder or learning disabilities. These results may improve the risk stratification of children with AD for cognitive impairments and suggest that evaluation for cognitive difficulties should be prioritized among children with AD and neurodevelopmental disorders.
