Abstract

Objects: The aim of this study was to investigate the role of dental metals in the development of atopic dermatitis (AD).<BR>Subjects and method: From 300 patients with refractory AD, who showed positive lymphocyte stimulation test (LST) reactions to dental metal salts, we removed the dental restorations that contained LSTpositive metals and evaluated the improvement of clinical symptoms.<BR>Result: Positive LST reactions were observed in 98% to Hg, 95% to Ni, 37% to Au, 27% to Ag, 31% to Pd, and 24% to In, respectively. The ratio of clinical symptom improvement “excellent” and “good” was 70%(211/300).<BR>Conclusion: Clinically recalcitrant lesions were improved by dental metal removal. This fact reveals that dental metals play an important role in the pathogenesis of refractory AD.
