Aim of this study is to evaluate the dependence between the occurrence of food hypersensitivity reactions and the severity of atopic dermatitis. The detailed personal history about the food hypersensitivity reactions was recorded and the severity of atopic dermatitis was evaluated with SCORAD index. The statistical evaluation of the dependence between the occurrence of food hypersensitivity reactions and the severity of atopic dermatitis was performed. Two hundred and eighty-five patients were examined – 90 men and 195 women, average age 26.2 (s.d. = 9.5). The significant dependence between the severity of atopic dermatitis and the occurrence of food hypersensitivity reactions was confirmed; 96% of patients with severe form of atopic dermatitis suffer from food reactions. In evaluating the single foods, the significant dependence was found between the severity of atopic dermatitis and the reactions to nuts, apples, and fishes.
