Association of Atopic Dermatitis and Mental Health Outcomes Across Childhood

Association of Atopic Dermatitis and Mental Health Outcomes Across Childhood Key PointsQuestionIs atopic dermatitis (AD) associated with symptoms of depression and internalizing behaviors throughout childhood and adolescence? FindingsIn this cohort study of 11 181 participants, severe AD was associated with an approximately 2-fold increase in the likelihood of symptoms of depression and internalizing symptoms across childhood. Although mild to moderate AD was not associated with symptoms of depression, it was associated with internalizing behaviors as early as 4 years of age. MeaningThe findings of this cohort study suggest that, because AD is common and associated with symptoms of depression and internalizing behaviors in early childhood, future work research should evaluate the role of early screening and interventions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Dermatology American Medical Association

Abstract

Key PointsQuestionIs atopic dermatitis (AD) associated with symptoms of depression and internalizing behaviors throughout childhood and adolescence? FindingsIn this cohort study of 11 181 participants, severe AD was associated with an approximately 2-fold increase in the likelihood of symptoms of depression and internalizing symptoms across childhood. Although mild to moderate AD was not associated with symptoms of depression, it was associated with internalizing behaviors as early as 4 years of age. MeaningThe findings of this cohort study suggest that, because AD is common and associated with symptoms of depression and internalizing behaviors in early childhood, future work research should evaluate the role of early screening and interventions.
