Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common form of chronic eczematous dermatitis that typically begins in infancy or childhood and continues on a waxing-waning course into adulthood. Ocular sequelae are common, including subcapsular cataracts, herpes simplex, conjunctivitis, keratoconus, and retinal detachment. In this case report, Bair et al emphasize that, while anterior subcapsular cataracts are more specific to AD, posterior subcapsular cataracts (PSCs) are more common. Risk factors for PSC development include infantile AD onset, family history of atopy, systemic corticosteroid use, and elevated lipid peroxide levels. Dermatologists caring for patients with AD are encouraged to refer these patients for ophthalmologic monitoring.
