Chronic Urticaria and Atopic Disorders: a Cross-sectional Study of 11,271 Patients Academic Article uri icon


  • Our study was designed as a cross-sectional study of CU patients and age-and sexmatched controls. CU was defined as 4 couples of urticaria diagnoses, each recorded within a period of 6 weeks, registered by physicians in the primary care setting or during hospitalization from January 2002 to December 2012. The control group consisted of ageand sex-matched patients without urticaria extracted from the general population of CHS enrollees. Asthma, AD, and AR are all available as independent codes in the CHS database
