Abstract A 37-year-old male with a 13-year history of atopic dermatitis (AD) was treated with cognitive behavioural stress management. Self-rated stress and extent of AD rash decreased from baseline to the end of treatment, and gains were maintained at follow-up. A significant correlation between stress and extent of AD rash was observed. Discussion focused on the possible role of stress induced immunosuppression on exacerbations of AD, and the need for controlled trials evaluating the treatment procedures used in the current study.
