Answer

Associated features (nonspecific but suggest the diagnosis of AD) are as follows:

  • Atypical vascular responses (eg, facial pallor, delayed blanch response)
  • Keratosis pilaris/pityriasis alba/hyperlinear palms/ichthyosis

  • Ocular/periorbital changes

  • Other regional findings (eg, perioral changes/periauricular lesions)

  • Perifollicular accentuation/lichenification/prurigo
