Physiopathology of acetylcholine delayed blanch in atopics. thermographic study (author's transl)

Controversy subsists about interpretations of "delayed cholinergic blanch" in atopic dermatitis. A physical approach of this vasomotor phenomenon using infrared and cholesteric thermography and direct recording of skin temperature shows that the delayed blanch is hyperthermic and cannot be the effect of a paradoxal cholinergic vasoconstriction. In the light of the beta-adrenergic blockade theory of Szentivanyi a new physiopathological interpretation is proposed.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus.
