Özet

Papular urticaria, also known as strophulus, strophulus infantum, strophulus pruriginosus, lichen urticatus, flea-bite dermatitis, prurigo acuta simplex, and prurigo chronica multiformis, is a very pruritic and persistent dermatologic disease of childhood. It is primarily seen in children with atopic diathesis and represents a complex hypersensitivity reaction to many kinds of insect bites. The disease is a relatively common diagnosis in dermatology and pediatric clinics. In this article, we briefly outline recent concepts on its etiologic, epidemiological, physiopathological, clinical, histopathological, and diagnostic properties and review the information about its prevention and therapy.
