Abstract

Urticarial disease is characterized by transient erythematous, swelling and pruritic lesions. Classification of the disease as acute and chronic urticeria provide a comprehensive approach to detect the etiological factors and estimate the prognosis. In this paper, clinical classification of urticeria, pathogenesis, related factors with disease and therapy options were reviewed. (Turk Arch Ped 2012; 47: 235-9)
