Serum IgE Level in Patients of Atopic Dermatitis and Atopic Dermatitis with Molluscum Contagiosum


The increase of serum IgE in atopic dermatitis is well known. And atopic patients are frequently complicated by viral infection, such as molluscum contagiosum. So, we studied the serum IgE level in patients of atopic dermatitis and atopic dermatitis with molluscum eontagiosum to evaluate the relationship between molluscum contagiosum and IgE level in patients with atopic dermatitis. The results were summarized as follows : 1. Serum IgE level in patients of atopic dermatitis was 168.8+117.0 IU/ml, which was higher than that of control group (87.6+/-40.0 IU/ml) (p<0.05). 2. Serum IgE level in patients of atopic dermatitis with molluscum contagiosum was 137.8+/-91.9 IU/ml, which was lower than that of atopic dermatitis without molluscum contagiosum (178.3+/-123.7 IU/ml) (p>0.05).
