Thirty-five children affected by a recurrent summer and spring papular eruption on the elbows, knees, and backs of the hands were examined retrospectively in order to evaluate the frequency of atopy.

This high proportion confirms the fact that an underlying atopy may predispose to the occurrence of this dermatosis.
