Clinical Scenarios: Translating Epidemiological Data Into Clinical Practice

Taking into account the phenotypes identified by cluster analysis from the epidemiological studies shown in Figures 3 and Figure S1 (see Supporting Information) and the epidemiological studies reviewed, we present some common clinical scenarios in paediatric patients (Table 1, Table 2, Table 3, Table 4 and Table 5). These summarize their clinical presentation, estimated risk of persistence of AD and management recommendations to advise clinicians on key questions to ask during a visit. These cases reflect those commonly seen in clinical practice. We summarize the data informing the responses to these questions in Figure 5.
